Our clergy are the lifeblood of our Church communities. They don't just celebrate Liturgy ‒ they hear our confessions, give us spiritual counsel, comfort us in times of loss, and guide us in the Faith. But our clergy need our help, too! Help them continue to serve Christ and the people.
When disaster strikes around the world, many of our ROCOR missions have nowhere else to turn but the FFA. With the generosity of donors like you, we hope to never turn anyone away!
Every penny you donate is given to the cause of your choice. But that doesn't mean we don't have overhead! When you donate to the General Fund, you help the FFA continue its work of helping Orthodox Christians around the world and making sure donations always go where they are intended.
Archimandrite Nektariy (Hajji-Petropoulos) does some amazing work in Mexico City. In addition to being the only ROCOR community in Mexico serving the spiritual needs of the faithful, the mission at Holy Trinity Monastery also helps those in need, assists immigrants in finding jobs, rescues women and children from domestic abuse, and saves victims of sex trafficking. But Fr. Nektariy needs your help to continue his God-pleasing work!
The war in Ukraine has had disastrous consqueneces, driving people from their homes, cutting off necessary utilities and supplies, and creating waves of refugees. The Fund for Assistance is working with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and ROCOR's Diocese of Germany to get aid delivered wherever it is needed. You can help our Ukrainian brothers and sisters today!
Fr. Joseph Farooq leads the ROCOR mission in Pakistan. We just recently helped Fr. Joseph retire "Mike the Bike" and purchase a new car for the mission, but there is a lot left to do, helping those in need in a society where openly professing Christianity can be dangerous. You can help support these modern confessors!
You may have heard that Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. You may also know that the country has been rocked by earthquakes, political assassinations, and mass shortages, and sporadic violence. But you may not know that Haiti is home to seven ROCOR parishes and thousands of Orthodox faithful, ministered to by just a handful of priests and deacons. But with your help, they are building churches, sheltering the homeless, feeding the hungry, and educating a whole new generation of Haitian Orthodox Christian youth. They can't do it without your help!
Fr. Augustin Gesnel is a ROCOR priest in Haiti, and he’s just what the doctor ordered for his parish. Because he has an unquenchable entrepreneurial spirit. He’s always coming up with projects that make the life of his family and his parishioners better. The latest one is this: he plans to buy a truck so that they can sell sand. They will get sand from rivers and mines, then they drive the truck to construction sites and sell the sand. They already have customers. The good news is that there is tons of construction in Haiti these days!
