Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry

To all of you who contributed to this year's Philoptochos Charity Drive for the Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry, many thanks for making this another banner year.  Not only did we reach our goal of $1,000, we surpassed it and were able to write a check for $1,402! Our ministry to reach out and help prisoners who strive to rebuild their spiritual lives was inspirational to them.
