Fundraiser 2020
Dear Parishioners,

Hoping this note finds you and your family healthy and safe during these challenging times.

Today, we find ourselves in the midst of a pandemic with no clear end in sight. Our cathedral was forced to close its doors for regular worship for two months during our highest holy days of the year. This note is not meant to reflect on the negative, rather to consider the many great outcomes that have evolved from these challenges. And to ask for your support during these continued challenges.

Our goal for this year is to raise $100,000. Now, more than ever, we are relying on your generosity and support. Together we will overcome these ongoing challenges and become stronger and more united than ever. The raising of these funds is extremely important to the daily functioning and upkeep of our Parish and Cathedral.

In order to continue our work as a Parish and as a beacon for this community, we again must ask for your help. Due to COVID-19 we are unable to hold an in person fundraiser. We humbly ask that you’ll consider making a donation at https://www.stsavaboston.org/donate.

Years ago, we overcame the “Great Flood” together. And now, together, and united, we’ll withstand the challenges of this Pandemic.

Reflecting on the words of Christ, “All things are possible to him who believes!” Mark 9:23.
In Christ,

St. Sava Cathedral

Недеља 27. по Духовима

А кад учаше у једној зборници у суботу, И гле, беше онде жена болесна од духа осамнаест година, и беше згрчена, и не могаше се исправити. А кад је виде, дозва је Исус и рече јој: Жено! Опроштена си од болести своје. И метну на њу руке, и одмах се исправи и хваљаше Бога. А старешина од зборнице срђаше се што је Исус исцели у суботу, и одговарајући рече народу: Шест је дана у које треба радити, у оне дакле долазите те се лечите, а не у дан суботни. А Господ му одговори и рече: Лицемере! Сваки од вас у суботу не одрешује ли свог вола или магарца од јасала, и не води да напоји? А ову кћер Авраамову коју свеза сотона, ево осамнаеста година, не требаше ли је одрешити из ове свезе у дан суботни? И кад Он ово говораше стиђаху се сви који Му се противљаху; и сав народ радоваше се за сва Његова славна дела.
27th Sunday after Pentecost

Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.” And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.” The Lord then answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it? So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound – think of it – for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?” And when He said these things, all His adversaries were put to shame; and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.
