Prosfora = Bread for Holy Communion
We need 4 Prosfora every week
3 Prosfora for Sunday’s Liturgy &
1 for Weekday’s Liturgy
Total: About 210 Prosfora per Year
What a blessing it is for someone to make a Prosforo for Holy Communion!
We need about 210 Prosfora every year. It is an awesome responsibility
for each family to offer something towards this effort. We can’t ask the same ladies every other week to bake bread
for us. Let us all participate in this task, to make it a little easier for them. Ask yourself: What can I do? How can I help?
Could your family (if you don’t know how or, don’t have the time to make a Prosforo) offer a small donation
towards this endeavor? The cost is $8 per Prosforo or $32 per week. Money collected for this effort (we want to make this
very clear) will be used to purchase bread only from the Monastery of Agia Skepi=Holy Protection of the Theotokos located
in White Haven, PA (donation is tax deductible).
The sisters bake exceptionally good Prosfora for $8 each. Because it
is bread used for the Liturgy, it cannot be shipped. Thus, in the future, if anyone plans to visit St. Skepi, please let us
know: We will provide you the funds to bring back Prosfora for our beloved parish.
Prosfora can be offered for special
occasions: Anniversary, Birthday, Memorial service, Nameday or, for loved ones struggling with illness. When you offer Prosfora,
you should submit the names of both the living and deceased to be commemorated by the Priest.
For any questions in this
effort, please contact Father George or Presvytera Joanna Alexson.
Thank you in advance for your Kindness & support!
