2011 Chinese New Year Breakfast

The Fellowship of St John the Divine is proud to report that $932 has been raised during this past Sunday's Chinese New Year's Breakfast after Liturgy, with a higher than expected turnout compared to previous years. Special thanks goes to everyone who helped and those who contributed as the event shows true synergy from the kitchen to the church hall and among the parishioners, both young and old.

All food and drinks have been donated so 100% of contribution goes straight to the Chinese Translation Project via the Orthodox Fellowship of All Saints of China. The funds will go towards the liturgical translation effort of our translator in Shanghai, who has completed portions of the Great Book of Needs, Horologion, Sunday Octoechos, Festal Menaion, Lenten Menaion and Pentecostarion. This will familiarize the Chinese with the sacramental and liturgical life of the Orthodox Church. When indigenous clergy are ordained in due time in China, this will provide opportunity for the Faithful to worship in their local language.
