The Holy Cross Sisterhood of St Nina Cordially invite you to a "Lunchless Luncheon" to support the Convent of St Thekla at the Antiochian Village.
This special event will be held throughout Great Lent in an ordinary envelope. The appropriate attire will be a contrite and humble heart seeking an avenue for your Lenten Almsgiving.
All women of the Antiochian Archdiocese are collectively known as 'The Antiochian Women.' Once a year we use our collective numbers to support a special project brought to our attention by Metropolitan PHILIP and others. For many years, Metropolitan PHILIP has had a vision that one day we would have a convent at Antiochian Village. With this goal in mind he gave us a new project for 2010, "The Convent of St Thekla," which will be built on the grounds of Antiochian Village. It is again our project for 2012. Last year Holy Cross raised $1528. Please help us not only meet, but surpass this total. The vision for the future of the Convent and all that it has to offer will be absolutely wonderful!
Upon the arrival of Mother Alexandra at the Village on 7 July 2009 much has transpired. From the implementation of Metropolitan PHILIP's early vision of a monastery for the Antiochian Archdiocese, to Mother Alexandra being asked to serve as the abbess, to the selection of a site, to the retention of an architect, Doug Shoop, and, most recently, Doug's magnificent renderings of the Convent, one of which graces our 2011–2012 Project poster. Additional information and photographs are located on the Archdiocese's website. Please join the North American Board of Antiochian Women in working on this exciting and worthwhile project. With faith, love, and determination, please help us make this vision a reality.
Please make checks payable to Holy Cross with St Thekla Convent designated in the memo line, and return via the mail or offering basket by 3 April.
