Provide facilities and other resources necessary to evangelize and grow a community of Orthodox Christian believers in Southern Colorado; committed to spiritual formation, interpersonal relationships, missions, and outreach to our neighbors in service to the poor, the sick and suffering and those in prison.
Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church is at a crossroads in its history where a small congregation must make a monumental leap of faith to purchase real estate where the essence of Orthodox Christianity can foster, grow and spread for generations.
We are currently in the third year of a capital campaign designed to raise the funding required to achieve our goals. A brief history of the campaign follows:
On September 12, 2015, we kicked off our capital campaign with a beautiful event at the Antler's Hilton in Colorado Springs. Sixty people were in attendance. We had moving presentations and video as well as a beautiful finale by Met. Isaiah challenging us to continue in this effort. The evening ended with the collection of 24 pledges. God bless you!
In November of 2016, we sought out the guidance of Jerry Minetos from the Archidiocese Parish Development Office. We received 3 anonymous donations to fund his travel expenses. Mr, Minetos visited our parish three times between December 2016 and February 2016 & conducted confidential, in-person interviews with our parishers in order to better understand the desires of our Parish family. From these interviews it was determined that:
In December of 2017, Mr Minetos again came to our parish to speak confidentailly to the members of our parish who had expressed a willingness to contribute to the capital campaign. The purpose of this visit was to update potential donors on the progress the capital campaign committee has made in the past year and evaluate each member's willingness to commit to fixed contributions in the amount of their choosing over a 3 year period. The theme of our campaign is "Offering From Our Abundance For The Glory of God"; it is with this in mind that parishoners are asked to give.
The Capital Campaign Committee has prepared answers to our most Frequently Asked Questions regarding the purpose of the Capital Campaign, the reasons we are looking for a new home and the progress we have made to date. This document is available for download here.
If you would like to learn more, feel free to contact a committee member or stop by the parish office to read a copy of the completed study.
