Orphanage Church Tour and Lunch

On Friday, July 16 the Church hosted a luncheon for orphans, workers, and volunteers of 'The Love Cradle' mission, based in Souderton.  The Protestant mission provides for the needs of orphans in the Ukraine.  It was felt that by extending hospitality by opening St. Philip's Church to the orphans, they would have an opportunity to learn about their heritage.  Fr. Noah welcomed the orphans in the narthex, where they received name tags and learned the story of St. Noah and the Ark.  Inside the holy temple the children sat respectfully while Fr. Noah taught them some basics of Orthodoxy and took questions from them, calling special attention to the many lovely icons which the parish is privileged to have.  Many thanks to the people who provided donations of food and volunteered to set up and clean afterward.

The Ukrainian children's visits are being sponsored by the multi-denominational, nonprofit "Rainbow of Hope" program.  Families who are interested in sponsoring visiting orphans are encouraged to contact Stephen Yagilnicky, President of The Love Cradle Mission:  www.lovecradleint.org   (215) 723-0263.
