Each time we use the Fairfax Railroad Museum for services the rental fee is approximately $130. We're looking for people who are interested in sponsoring a service by donating the rental fee for a specific date. Doing so enables us to continue expanding our liturgical cycle without incurring additional costs. Sponsor's names/organization will be posted on our website and Facebook page unless the donor prefers to remain anonymous. For more information or to sponsor a specific date, contact Rdr. Alexander at firstname.lastname@example.org

As a new mission station, we are constantly in need of liturgical items. Below is a list of liturgical items needed and their cost. If you'd like to donate a specific item(s), please contact Reader Alexander Woodill at email@example.com and he will assist you. Items can be donated in memory of a loved one. A log will be maintained documenting each donation.
Orthodox use different color coverings to mark the liturgical seasons and feasts. A member of the mission station makes our covers so we only have to pay for fabric and supplies. We are currently in need of purple (Great Lent), blue (feast of the Theotokos), white (Pascha) and green (Palm Sunday, Pentecost).
Icons are printed on canvas for future mounting. The following icons are needed:
Meeting of the Lord in the Temple
Christ Extreme Humility
Palm Sunday- Donated. Thank you!
Pascha- Donated. Thank you!
St. Mary Of Egypt
St. Gregory Palamas
The Ladder of Divine Ascent
Sunday of Orthodoxy
Christ the Bridegroom
Triumph of Orthodoxy
Check back often as we continue to add needed liturgical items to this page!
