Finances

Donate via PayPal   St. Raphael Operating Expenses St. Raphael Building Fund
St. Raphael Orthodox Church operates as a financially independent entity. That is, the parish is fully responsible for budgeting its income and its expenses, and maintaining the balance of the two.
Our expenses include clergy (mainly compensation for our priest), maintenance of our temple (including mortgage and all utilities), charity, and few other expenses.
Our only source of income are contributions from our members and friends. They come in form of regular pledges or one-off donations and gifts.
You are welcome to take a look at the Treasurer Report for a more detailed view of our financial situation.
