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 25. по Духовима

И гле, устаде један законик и кушајући Га рече: Учитељу! Шта ћу чинити да добијем живот вечни? А Он му рече: Шта је написано у закону? Како читаш? А он одговарајући рече: Љуби Господа Бога свог свим срцем својим, и свом душом својом, и свом снагом својом, и свом мисли својом, и ближњег свог као самог себе. Рече му пак: Право си одговорио; то чини и бићеш жив. А он хтеде да се оправда, па рече Исусу: А ко је ближњи мој? А Исус одговарајући рече: Један човек силажаше из Јерусалима у Јерихон, па га ухватише хајдуци, који га свукоше и изранише, па отидоше, оставивши га пола мртва. А изненада силажаше оним путем некакав свештеник, и видевши га прође. А тако и Левит кад је био на ономе месту, приступи, и видевши га прође. А Самарјанин некакав пролазећи дође над њега, и видевши га сажали му се; И приступивши зави му ране и зали уљем и вином; и посадивши га на своје кљусе доведе у гостионицу, и устаде око њега. И сутрадан полазећи извади два гроша те даде крчмару, и рече му: Гледај га, и шта више потрошиш ја ћу ти платити кад се вратим. Шта мислиш, дакле, који је од оне тројице био ближњи ономе што су га били ухватили хајдуци? А он рече: Онај који се смиловао на њега. А Исус му рече: Иди, и ти чини тако.
25th Sunday after Pentecost

And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?” So he answered and said, “’You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’” And He said to him, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.” But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?” And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”
