Assistant Lay Chairperson Report - January 2005

Submitted by Steve Hansen

In 2004, we were somehow able to end the year with our head above water... barely.

We had our annual pledge-drive in November, and according to the latest count, there are still some members who have not turned in their pledge for 2005. In order for this parish to thrive and grow, all of us have to determine what we are able to contribute and remain faithful to our pledge. Our budget is built exclusively on the pledges of our members. In 2004, as in past years, some of our parishioners gave over and above their pledged amount. If they had not done so, we would not have been able to meet our budget. We all realize that things come up throughout the year that put a strain on our personal finances. However, please remember that our Church depends on all of us to donate our time, talents, and finances to ensure that Saint Luke remains a viable place of worship for all of us.

On the lighter side, 2004 saw the 100th anniversary of our House of Worship and the 20th anniversary of Saint Luke Orthodox Church. It was also an exciting year for our temporary guest tenants, St. Mary’s, as they shared our Church and facilities while they looked for a permanent home.

We certainly have a lot to be thankful for and need to continue strive to become an Icon of an American Orthodox Church.
