Alms for a Monastery

During Great Lent we are instructed by the Church to increase our Christian practice of giving alms to those in need. This year, at St. Peter Orthodox Church, we are opening the door to another avenue to which we can give alms that will bring assistance to a worthy cause.

We are encouraging all to consider giving part of their charitable donations to the Benedictine Fellowship of St. Laurence, a monastery located near Canon City, Colorado. Please visit their website for more information regarding the monastery:  (

 During Lent, we will have a booth (featured in the picture above) with information about the monastery and the various means by which you can give alms to assist them.  One of our parishioners will be stationed at the booth between Mass and Sunday School to answer questions and share information about the Benedictine Fellowship of St. Laurence, so stop by and learn all that you can about this ministry.
