OPERATION BROOKLYN
Cathedral of the Transfiguration

“The holiday season is a time for renewal and thanks,” said Father Wiaczeslaw Krawczuk (Rector of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Transfiguration in Brooklyn NY). “It is in this spirit that we as Orthodox Christians come together to celebrate the joyful feast of the Nativity, as a family. The feeling of family relates also to our parishes, which are also rejuvenated from red to gold in the anticipation of a New Year, full of joys and challenges.  My parish is going through an additional rejuvenation this year.”

This beautiful church, began by Saint Alexander Hotovitski in 1908, is steeped in great history and is one of the oldest parishes on the East Coast of the United States (the full history can be seen on the parish website HERE).  For the first time in its long history, the church is undergoing a major renovation; the beautiful signature domes were completed a few years ago.

 
“We are asking, as a family, for help and support in completing such a monumental project,” said Father Wiaczeslaw. “Just as some of our five generations of parishioners have branched out and built new parishes to grow the community of the faithful, we ask that our brothers and sisters in Christ help us rejuvenate our church so we may also continue to serve our Orthodox community. We especially ask, in truest spirit of family, that those with connections to our parish contribute and carry on the legacy begun by your ancestors.”

The Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica once said “It is of great significance if there is a person who truly prays in a family. Prayer attracts God’s grace and all the members of the family feel it, even those whose hearts have grown cold.”
