Jordanville, NY: St.
Elizabeth Skete has undertaken a remodeling project
Elizabeth Skete in Jordanville, NY is remodeling its chapel. After
collecting donations since last year’s appeal, the sisterhood
realized that building a chapel will take years. For now, they
decided to work with the resources at hand to remodel the interior
space to accommodate their needs for daily services, with the hope
of building a larger permanent church once the necessary capital is
collected. The estimate for the immediate project is around $45,000.
The sisterhood has collected $10,000 thus far.
The sisterhood is currently adding a
balcony and steps, as well as installing a new floor.
In order to complete this project, the
sisterhood is appealing to our readers for much-needed financial
support. Please send your commemoration lists for prayers at the
skete’s liturgical services to:
1520 State Route 167
Mohawk, NY 13407
