Dear Parishioners, Friends and Supporters of St. Archangel Gabriel Orthodox Church,
Glory to God for all things!
We have great news to share with you: by God’s grace, our CRA charitable status has been reinstated! You can find the details at the CRA website (click here for the link).
It has been a struggle to gather all of the information that was requested, correct the errors and omissions made before and knock on all the doors we knew and could to get this matter straightened out. By God’s mercy, our prayers have been heard and efforts rewarded.
We will be able, once again, to provide you all with valid tax receipts for all of your contributions not only from this date onward, but also retroactively for all the contributions you have given us since our charitable status has been revoked, both through 2015 and 2016.
Also, this would be a good time, if you have had any problems with getting the tax receipts from the parish, to provide us with your correct and up-to-date contact information (address and telephone at least, email too, etc.), as well as with your record of contributions if we have not summed up your contributions correctly. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We thank you kindly for your generosity through these difficult months and, more importantly, for the trust you have shown to the parish boards and the love you have for our community of Faith.
Through the prayers of the Holy Theotokos, Lord Jesus Christ our God have mercy on us and save us! Amen.
– Church Board, Richmond Hill
