Don’t miss these great opportunities to reach out to those in need as we begin the new year!
Baltimore Orthodox Prison Ministry
The Baltimore County Detention Center has a need for men’s coats, sweaters, scarves and hats for the men there, and Four Evangelists is assisting other local Orthodox parishes in meeting this need. The Prison Ministry is also collecting art supplies to encourage the artists behind bars to develop their talents for good causes. Father Deacon Michael Bishop of Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church is coordinating this collection. We will have a donation station set up at Four Evangelists over the next several weeks to collect any items you wish to donate to this very worthy ministry.
