От редакции: Великим постом Синодальный отдел по работе с молодежью провел программу "Школьная копилка", собравшую с учеников нескольких церковно-приходских школ и детских кружков Русской Зарубежной Церкви в Северной Америке более десяти тысяч долларов на нужды приюта при Спасо-Вознесенской мужской обители в Банченах (Украина). В ходе недавнего паломничества по святыням Украинской Православной Церкви Синодального молодежного хора во главе с епископом Манхеттенским Николаем, протоиерей Андрей Соммер, заместитель председателя Синодального отдела по работе с молодежью, передал собранные средства руководству приюта. Во время посещения приюта Синодальный молодежный хор выступил с концертом перед детьми и администрацией, а епископ Николай благословил всех памятным даром - списком с Курско-Коренной иконы Божией Матери, облаченным в швейную ризу, некогда украшавшую чудотворный образ. Ниже приводится текст благодарственного письма от епископа Банченского Лонгина. [img-title id="439" link="true"]Ваше высокопреподобие,
Дорогой о Господе отец Андрей!


[/img-title] Выражаем Вам глубокую благодарность за благотворительную помощь, оказанную Спасо-Вознесенскому мужскому монастырю и воспитанникам детского дома. Выражая Вам признание за труды в Вашем благом, но нелегком деле, примите от нас это благодарственное письмо. От лица верующих, а особенно от лица детей, в это нелегкое для православной земли время, от себя лично сердечно и искренне благодарю Вас и детей Северо-Американских епархий Русской Зарубежной Церкви за оказанную помощь, которая крайне необходима. Выражаю Вам огромную благодарность и низко кланяюсь также от наших детей-инвалидов, детей-сирот, для которых в это обуреваемое время остро необходимо все то, что собрано и передано детьми из Американской Руси. С особой теплотой вспоминают дети-инвалиды выступление гостей, которое придало атмосферу умиротворения, наполнив каждое сердце наших детей особым сакральным смыслом, вдохновило на усовершенствование и работу над собой. Надеемся на дальнейшее сотрудничество с Вами во имя добра, света, мира и благоденствия! Желаем Вам крепкого здоровья! Пусть Господь примет все Ваши молитвы и добро, сотворенное Вами, вернется сторицей! С глубоким уважением, +ЛОНГИН, Епископ Банченский.
