Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Dormition Announces Recover Update

May 1, 2009


Dear Friends:
The holy altar table is being rebuilt by volunteers.
The building permits are in place.
We have chosen two contractors to share in the rebuilding of the interior of the Church and the hall, which work will start on the 6th of May.
We will not have air conditioning but hope to have the holy altar fully completed and have our first service, post “Ike”, on Saturday, May 23rd or May 30th.
I will send out a notice A.S.A.P. to advise on the date of our first service.
Please feel free to contact me anytime on my cellular at 281-686-6120.


Leroy Naschke Jr

Recovery Chairman

Save Iva Milenkovic

Dear Friend,

My sister Iva Milenkovic is 27 years old and battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer called extra-skeletal osteosarcoma. Unfortunately, there are very few hospitals in the world that have the expertise necessary to treat these cancers. One of them is the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
Being from a foreign country with no international insurance, Iva must cover all costs from personal funds. This is where we need your help. Your generosity can help save her life. Every dollar donated goes directly to covering Iva’s battle against cancer. Unfortunately, we do not have time to wait, so please donate now to help save Iva’s life. Thank you!

~ Zoran Milenkovic

How to Donate
The estimated cost of treatment for Iva is $250,000 over the next 9 months, averaging about $1000 per day. Please consider giving Iva a fighting chance by sponsoring a day of treatment.
