“O Lord Jesus Christ our God, who in Thy mercy and loving-kindness dost regard the prayers of all who call upon Thee with their whole heart, incline Thine ear and hear my prayer, now humbly offered unto Thee: Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy Holy Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church and especially the parish of St. John of Damascus; confirm and strengthen it, increase it and keep it in peace, and preserve it unconquerable forever.”
How You Can Support Our Community

No Cost Giving….
Amazon Smile – If you shop at amazon.com go instead to smile.amazon.com, search for and select St. John of Damascus Orthodox Church (our official name with the IRS) as your charity to support. Use the smile.amazon.com address when you shop at Amazon and .5% of qualifying purchases is donated to the church. You can also set this up in the Amazon app on your mobile device.
Escrip – Visit www.escrip.com. Indicate that you want to support St. John of Damascus, register your debit/credit cards, and as you use them at participating stores (both brick & mortar as well as online) a percentage of your purchases is donated back to St. John’s.
Scrip – We also participate in the gift card Scrip progam. Buy a gift card to stores where you regular shop (grocery stores, home improvement stores and all kinds of other options) and a percentage of that purchase is donated to the parish at no extra charge to you. Speak with Fr. Michael or to anyone who is part of St. John’s Auxiliary to find out more.
