- Dn. Gabriel McHugh -


As I'm sure you've heard, St. Spyridon's launched a feeding program in Ecuador this past summer called Panagia’s Pantry. Yota & Vasili, who head of the ministry, will be visiting our parish on Sunday, Oct 25, and we would like to send them back to Ecuador with clothing donations for the village children.

This is a great way for you to participate in the wonderful ministry of Panagia's Pantry!

There is a bin in the narthex of the church (see photo), into which you can deposit any summer clothing donations (shorts, t-shirts, pajamas) you have! Rubber flip flops and croc syle footwear are also appreciated. All sizes welcome! When you bring your donation, you will find bags and notes to “wrap” your gift to the children.

If you’d like to see more about the children who will benefit from your donation, check out this video!

Let’s fill up this bin by Oct 25 so Yota & Vasili can return to Ecuador with full arms!
