Bees wax for candles
Dear Friends of Holy Cross Monastery,
Greetings in Christ!
Thank you for your prayers while several of us were travelling during the Monastery Church's Renovation (see photos on blog). We are back now safely, through your prayers, and have a few more things to do in our Church.
We also need some "Pure Olive Oil" for our Church Lamps, if you are able to offer some. (We are using more Olive Oil lamps than before. Please note: "Pure Olive Oil" burns better in church lamps than "Extra Virgin Olive Oil".)
Also, if any of you can generously help us financially, we would appreciate it.
We need to purchase a whole pallet of Pure Beeswax (plus Cotton Wicking) to prepare for September when candle-making begins again in earnest.
If you can help us, we need to raise $8,000 dollars for this project, within the next month.
Please contact Fr Michael or Fr Parthenios: 631-681-5319 .
Or, please send check to:
