Our parish also intends to completely renovate our church building so that it will proudly represent our Orthodox faith and culture in Cincinnati. First steps are already being taken in organizing and planning the entire project. Our goal is to raise donations from our faithful to make these improvements.
This renovation will ensure our presence and ministry in the Cincinnati area as well as preserve our faith and tradition, and provide our community with a nice place to gather, worship and celebrate until we build a new Church.
Our main renovation goals are: To completely renovate the Altar inside as well as the Church interior. To purchase the Holy Table, the Oblation Table, Standing Tables for Icons in front of Iconostasion, Bishop's Throne, Standing Table for Icon in the center of the Church as well as the Standing Table for the Children's Icon, Choir Stand, Icons, and a Cabinet for Vestments and Books in the Altar. We also plan to install new Carpet or Hardwood Floor in the Altar and Church, replace all windows and doors, upgrade the parking lot, and improve landscaping and sidewalks around the church. We will also need volunteers for some painting and construction work.
