During this time leading to the birth of the Greatest Gift, the young parishoners of Holy Cross Church sent our school the following letter.

Dear Hieromonk Irenei,

Our Sunday school class at Holy Cross Orthodox Church in Williamsport held a hotdog sale during our fellowship hour. We have decided to donate $250.00 to St. John of San Francisco Orthodox Academy. Thank you for offering this school for Orthodox children. God bless you.

Nicholas, Ana, Aislinn, Sadie, Ryan, Vanessa, Maiya, Molly, Klarissa, Thea, Emily, Benjamin, Tatiana, Mark, Deborah

These children have taken to heart that 'it is better to give than to receive.' Our school wishes to thank these young friends for their generosity and thoughtfulness.
