Currently our Metropolia operates 16 Orthodox Western Rite missions and churches in the Philippines. These are administred by 9 priests, who must travel to different, and often out of the way locations, sometimes on foot, to celebrate Mass, hear Confessions, and administer other Sacraments. These missions have very little in the way of financial resources, and many are in the process of trying to complete physical buildings, maintain the structures, keep lights and water on. Priests need travel expenses. The total expenses need each month at this moment are 450 US dollars for all operating missions. Those willing to donate to the operating costs of the Orthodox Western Rite Deanery of the Philippines may donate through the Paypal button; please mark your donations as to the Orthodox Western Rite Deanery of the Philippines. We appreciate any help and pray God will bless the endeavour for the salvation of the souls of the people of the Philippines.
