CHURCH MAINTENANCE

Continuing with the maintenance and upkeep of our Gracanica Church, more renovations and upgrades were recently completed.


The Bell Tower restoration, in it’s second week, had a few rainy days and wind disruptions which delayed the completion until Friday. This week, repairs to the lower copper roofing will commence.


Those who attended services this weekend, saw other repairs and renovations which were completed. The parking lot was completely overhauled, repaved and new lines painted, while the grass area was cleared and gravel placed. The lamp posts and railing around the church were also painted.


Thank you to all those who gave their time, efforts and support to help with repairs around the church. We are blessed to have so many parishioners who volunteer their time working towards the betterment of our Gracanica Church and Community.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,


With the generous financial support of many of the faithful, we were able to meet our bell tower roof fundraising goal!


With the spiritual support of those of you who regularly assure us of your prayers for our efforts, we are inspired to continue working on improvements which will ensure that Gracanica always has a safe and welcoming environment for prayer and spiritual growth.

We still need your help to continue with the good work in maintaining the beautiful gift that is entrusted to us - our beautiful Gracanica Church. Please consider making a donation today!

THE SECRETS OF MARRIAGE, AN ORTHODOX PERSPECTIVE


Proto Vladimir Vranic, working with the Greek Clergy in Toronto, has been participating on a project dealing with the Orthodox perspective on marriage. The short video was intended to be circulated at schools and universities. 

 

The film was produced to support couples in modern day society where divorce is so incessant in order to better comprehend why marriage transpires into divorce so frequently.  This is a guide on how to salvage your commitments to each other and how to have a better chance at a life full of happiness within your marriage.
