Glory to God! The construction of St. Sava Orthodox Church’s new temple is taking shape and progressing beautifully. Our new temple total cost is just over $1.5 million. Our bank loan is for $875,000. $625,000 of the total amount is being paid by St. Sava and its parishioners. With $300,000 pledged by our parishioners in only 11 months time, a new challenge of rising construction costs faced us. During the Nativity Fast, St. Sava’s parishioners met that challenge, pledging an additional $50,000. That is all before the $50,000 recently required by the City of Allen for an extra fire hydrant and extended fire lanes. Once again, parishioners, and friends of St. Sava's came together to meet this latest challenge with a total of $53,232 in donations. Please continue to keep St. Sava Orthodox Church in your prayers and join us in the coming weeks as we celebrate the Dome Blessing.
