Scholarship For Seminarian Students At Holy Cross/Hellenic College.
Compiled by Reverend Presbyter Demetrios Serfes
Boise, Idaho

Sponsored By Orthodox Christian Mission Center,
St. Augustine, Florida - A Department Of National Ministries Of The
Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Of America.

Seminarians from foreign countries attend Holy Cross Theological Seminary & Hellenic College in Brookline, Massachusetts.  Thanks to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center in St. Augustine, Florida full scholarship for eight mission students is provided by this most remarkable and caring Mission.

A need of love and support for these mission Seminarians at Holy Cross Seminary is needed. After these mission Seminarians finish their Theological studies, they will go back to their countries. They will return as priest to share the Holy Orthodox faith we love, and at the same time join with others in God Loving prayer, as well as give the pastoral needs and concerns of the faithful.

The Orthodox Christians Mission Center shows a daily concern of the needs of these foreign Seminarians, as full tuition is provided and the purchase of necessary needs that a person must have such as books etc. The budget for this Mission must be met on a monthly basis, and our love and support is needed.

What then is involved by the Orthodox Christian Mission Center? Paying for the mission students tuition, room and board, medical, clothes, books. One can well imagine in sending someone to college today as the expenses are astronomical, and for a foreign student it's most difficult. However, thanks be to God for the gracious kindness and concern for these missionary students at the Seminary. The students can now pay more attention to their studies and prayer. Without the help of the Orthodox Christian Mission Center and your kind zealous donations these students would not be provided with the necessary Theological education needed to return to their countries, to provide the pastoral needs of it's faithful Orthodox Christians.

These are the following names of the students who are now presently at Holy Cross Theological Seminary. If you would like to help with assistance for these seminarians, please open up your kind heart and send your loving donation to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center for the Scholarships provided for eight students:

Father Constantine Mbonabingi Africa
George Khitri & Wife Georgia
Deacon Athanasios Akunde Kenya
Fr. Alexander Sarapik & Family Estonia

Deacon Gabriel Rehatta Indonesia

Please, God Loving Christians reach into your hearts to help this respected and honorable concern in providing the needs for this "Scholarship Program For Foreign Students" provided by the Orthodox Christian Mission Center, at Holy Cross/Hellenic College in Brookline, Massachusetts. These seminarian students are a bright hope spiritually for the many Churches they represent.  Express an interest, and give a donation of your choice to the following:
