LET US HELP IN THE HEALING OF FR. VLADIMIR ZIVKOVIC
The Holy Synod in Belgrade has requested the participation of all Dioceses of the Serbian Orthodox Church to help raise funds for one of our brothers in Christ, Fr. Vladimir Zivkovic, who was diagnosed with acute leukemia and is currently in Germany for medical treatment. Fr. Vladimir is 34 years old and is a priest in the Diocese of Srem under the omophorion of His Grace, Bishop Vasilije.
As we all know, dealing with cancer is an emotional and stressful time. Treatment costs add up quickly and contribute to this stress. We appeal to you, your parish boards, and your parishioners for donations to help pay for the medical treatment Fr. Vladimir needs.
Please announce this plea for financial help to your parishioners on Sunday after the Liturgy, put it in your bulletins and e-newsletters. After you have collected the funds, please send a check to the office of your respective Diocese, please note "Humanitarian Fund" in the memo section. We ask that all funds be received by our office by Friday, March 22, 2013.
Please pray for the health and recovery of Fr. Vladimir.
Thank you for your help in announcing this plea and for your assistance in collecting the funds.
