MIDDLETOWN, NY – Members of Hudson Odysseus AHEPA Chapter 545 presented a check for $3,350 to Fr. Kasianos, Gerontas of Saint Nektarios Monastery in Roscoe, NY on July 17.
A total of $5,350 was donated to the monastery by chapter members for the purchase of equipment greatly needed by the monastery to help maintain and improve the grounds. Fr. Kasianos graciously and gratefully received the chapter donation and invited chapter members and their families to visit the monastery and experience its spiritual gifts.
The Hudson Odysseus chapter intends to grow its connections and support of this wonderful spiritual retreat which is close to the chapter location in Middletown, NY. Previous to this donation the amount of $800 was also given in June of this year to the Church of Saint Markella near Monticello, NY. The donation was given to assist the fundraising efforts for improvements to the church.
