Update from Fr. Rector Sergii:

We keep in touch with Sofia and her mother Ludmila. They are amazed at the response of St Basil’s parishioners and their friends, of the people who live across the globe and whom they do not know but who, moved by Christian love, gave of their — sometime very modest — means. According to Ludmila: «We are slowly moving towards fulfillment of our dream!»

From Fr. Rector Sergii:

Many thanks to those who have answered our cry for help for little Sofia!
To schedule the surgeries for Sofia, the funds need to be deposited on the hospital’s account first. No additional financial aid is available to such patients as Sofia, as the surgeries are performed already at a discounted rate. Since the funds were not collected by June 11, the surgeries which were planned for end of July are postponed till September, provided the fund are collected by early-mid August.
Besides your donations, it is very important to spread the word — the more people learn about Sofia and what can be done for her in St Louis, the sooner the operations can be scheduled. Perhaps, some of you know about a charitable organization or a charitable fund at your place of work? Or you may know a person of means who could be approached with a request for an appropriately-sized donation? By answering this plea this person would be closer to the Heavenly Kingdom.

WELCOME!  For first time visitors to our site, and to our Church, we welcome you!  This page contains some basic information about our parish and Orthodox worship for those who haven’t experienced it yet.

To start with, we want you to know at least this much:

You are welcome here. We are always honored to have visitors join us for prayer and worship.

You won’t be asked to do anything which would make you uncomfortable.

We don’t expect visitors to contribute anything to the financial support of our parish or our programs.

Our children worship with us. If you have young children, they are welcome here, too. If you need to step to the back of the Church with your child for any reason, you are not disturbing us. We expect Christian children to be raised in the Church and to do that, they have to be in the Church.

All of our facilities are handicap accessible. If you need any assistance at all, please let us know. We are here to be of service to you.

If you are an Orthodox Christian, and you have prepared yourself to receive Holy Communion according to your Spiritual Father’s direction, be sure to introduce yourself to Fr. Martin before the service. You are welcome to approach the chalice.

Here is a booklet that will examine how we worship and our customs.  Worship at St. Basil’s
