Our Church and rectory is in dire need for new siding. The hard winters left their toll on it. In many places the siding is falling apart and almost down to the ply wood. At the same time of the siding we would like to insulate the building better to get our heating cost especially down.
The approximately cost is something in the 30K range.
We would like to purchase a kiosk to house the relics we have for proper veneration.
Such would approximately cost $2k.
With our new Hieromonk, we must prepare for winter and purchase boots, jacket, gloves, etc.
God willing as the brotherhood grows,we will be having more and more monastic belts and other garments.
A belt from istok runs about $75.
Every year one of our biggest expenses is the snow plowing of the driveway around the Church. This costs about $300/month as a flat rate. He does a very good job.
