In parishes of our Diocese a collection is generally taken up every year during November to help the work of the Fund for Assistance (FFA) to the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR). The FFA supports the participation of our youth in church life; helps with the financial, insurance and health care needs of clergy; and provides emergency relief to missions of the ROCOR, particularly in poorer countries. This year, the collection will be taken up in our parish on Sunday 21 November. Collection envelopes will be available in church from Saturday 20 November. Those who wish to support the work of the FFA but will be in church on this day may make a direct donation here.
