Fundraising Kickoff on December 3rd!

Our Annual Fundraising Kickoff for the summer mission trip is this Sunday, December 3rd from 2-5pm at St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church in Bridgeport, CT.

We will once again be making our famous, festive toffee treats to sell as a fundraiser for the 2024 trip. These sell out every year, so don’t miss out!
All are welcome to join us, even if you can’t make the 2024 trip or are still undecided. We can answer all your questions at this meeting! We will also be providing assistance with signing the Covenant and registering with ASP. This is the first opportunity of the year for our 2024 Team to gather!
If you plan to join the Team for the 2024 mission trip, please help us finalize our numbers by completing the Covenant (scan the QR code above) before our meeting on December 3rd.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

In Christ,

Susan and Lexi

This is an opportunity for interested youth to see what we are all about, and experience a shortened version of a day on one of our summer mission trips. We will be working on a parishioner’s home in Stratford, CT, and there will be projects for all levels of skill and comfort. Parents are more than welcome to accompany their youth, and there will be a Parent Q&A during construction. No experience or tools necessary. This event is for all returning and prospective team members!

To RSVP, email by October 22nd (parishioner’s address and more information will be shared upon RSVP). Reach out with any questions!
