FUNDRAISER HELPING HANDS
St. Sabbas Monastery and the Royal Eagle are offering to extend a helping hand to a very important cause.
To help suffering Christians in Gaza to survive and rebuild.
The Mother Church needs your help!
Join us for a very important fundraiser dinner with Chef Petr's specialties.
Join us in preserving History.
Join us for a very special event and you can offer a helping hand by dining with us.
All proceeds from this event will be channeled directly to the church of
St. Porhyrius in Gaza.
Original construction of St. Porphyrius Church dates back to 425 A.D.
It is part of the Church of Jerusalem, which is the church of the apostles in the New Testament and therefore the Mother Church of Christianity
St. Porphyrius was born in 347 A.D.
While in Jerusalem, he had a vision of Christ and was healed from an illness
He was appointed bishop of Gaza, which was mostly pagan at the time
Continuing the tradition of the apostles, he spread the Gospel and baptized many people into Christianity
Recent years ...
Since 2007, there has been a blockade on Gaza, restricting movement of people, diesel and gasoline, and funding
Massive air raids have been pelting Gaza for many years during the Israel-Palestine conflict, and many homes and churches have been caught in the crossfire
Hundreds of people, including women and children, have sought protection in St. Porphyrius Church during these bombings
What can be done?
We can start with awareness... In a world which is filled with
news concerning many issues, conflicts and tragedies, it is very easy to overlook what is very important: our roots, as Christians,
regardless of what denomination, we share one Mother Church,
the Church of Jerusalem.
Despite the tense political situation, past travel restrictions for its pilgrims and many other set backs. The Church of Jerusalem is still doing her work guarding the Tomb of Christ, maintaining and taking care of all the historical Christian sights in Holy Land, as well as preserving the Truth for future generations. It is our duty to help her.
The Church of St. Prophyrius needs our charity to preserve the building structure from collapsing so they can remain a safe haven for the Christians in Gaza. Be a part of this exciting process of preserving what is important and fundamental.
