2021 CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN: LET'S HELP BIC MONASTERY HAVE A ROOF

If you wish to make donations for this project, please send your donation with the memo: "Romania charitable program."

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime,” goes an old saying.  By God’s mercy, the Holy Cross Orthodox Church from San Jose was able to help for many years the poorest of the poorest - of any ethnical, social or religious background. Our church helped and - recently - partnered with Romanian nonprofit organizations who educate, provide food, build houses for and offer support and health care to impoverished children and elders.

Our Board carefully reviews the applications from organizations which further our mission. We execute an agreement specifying the use of funds, monitor their use and require a report on how the funds were spent.

The charitable activities of our church focused particularly on Romania, not only because it is the native country of many parishioners, but also because, long after the fall of communism, Romania’s poverty rate was the highest in the EU.  The situation of many children and old people continues to deteriorate. Many families have disintegrated. One, or both parents, had to seek work abroad, leaving behind their little ones. Kids and grandparents alike suffer from loneliness, depression, and poverty.

Thus, our church parishioners stepped in to help. 

Past campaigns

Since 2017, we formally partnered with five major organizations: 

Our parishioners donated generously. With kindness and love, these organizations are helping in turn, each year, thousands of destitute people.
