Stewardship is the working out of our faith through giving in order to carry on God’s work. Our actions, our lives, and our giving are the most accurate measure of our faith. The material things in our lives, our time, our talent and treasures speak so clearly about what’s most important for us, they mold and shape who we are and how we live as we need to ask ourselves do we allow God to enter these areas of our lives? Does He impact our thinking in these choices? Christian Stewardship is faith in action.

We greatly appreciate your financial gifts to St. Seraphim of Sarov Cathedral/Protection of the Holy Virgin Parish. Tax receipts will be issued for all eligible donations. Our chosen vendor is PayPal, an eBay Company, which allows you to make your donation with a credit card – safely, securely, and conveniently (available from 38 countries). Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted.
