MALVERNE, NY – As has been widely reported in the global news media, the New York Metro area was struck by hurricane Sandy earlier this week causing massive damage and devastation.
The community surrounding Cathedral Church of the Intercessor, where the Patriarch of the ICCEC is pastor, was greatly affected by this storm. The Cathedral has somewhere between 20 and 30 families left homeless from the super storm. Two families have lost their businesses. The pastoral staff of Intercessor, including the Patriarch, is still assessing the needs of the parish.
What they know so far is the need is far greater than any local parish can handle. Therefore the Cathedral, OUR Cathedral, has set up a relief fund and they need help. Please consider giving generously to this effort.
Checks can be made out to Church of the Intercessor with Hurricane Relief in the memo. The church address is 50 St. Thomas Place, Malverne, NY 11565.
