It is customary in the Russian Orthodox Church when requesting prayers for the departed to bring an offering to God and His Church from the fruit of one’s labor. This act of almsgiving is spiritually beneficial both for the giver and for those departed ones on behalf of whom the gift is made (please be assured that we will fulfill your request for prayer regardless of whether or not you choose to make a donation). If you wish to do so, you may either donate online, or if you prefer you may send your offering to the following address:
Hermitage of the Holy Cross
Attn: Lenten Commemorations
505 Holy Cross Road
Wayne, WV 25570-5403
Thank you very much for your prayers and support!
