A Special Message for Great Lent

As we start another Great Lent, I think about our Savior’s ministry. Christ came and preached not only to faithful and sinners alike, but even descended into Hades to awaken the dead with His Life; to bring Light to those despairing in the darkness. I’m Father Athanasios Haros with the Transfiguration of Our Savior Greek Orthodox Church in Florence, SC.

We live in an age where many people are asleep in their faith and lost in the darkness of a secular world.  Christ calls us to share His Light not only with fellow believers but also to those who are spiritually asleep or lost. We can do that by reaching out to people in the places where they already are - like the Internet.
That’s why I’m asking you to partner with us at Holy Transfiguration this Lenten season to help us dispel the darkness one click at a time. With our internet ministries, our parish is actively trying to dispel the darkness and we want to invite you to help us.

You have already taken the first step by listening. Now is time to take action and invite others to listen. We are offering a variety a programs, produced locally and also from the Orthodox Christian Network, to present Orthodoxy to our own faithful, and also to spread the Gospel message throughout South Carolina.

I would personally ask you to stand with us and support our internet ministries. Take this opportunity to make a lenten alms gift to go directly to supporting this important endeavor of our parish. Please visit our website or mail your check to 2990 S Cashua Dr, Florence, SC 29501.

So as we move towards Pascha to receive the light, I pray that you have a fruitful lenten season, and thank you for listening and supporting Holy Transfiguration’s Internet ministry.
