Prosfora = Bread for Holy Communion
We need 4 Prosfora every week
3 Prosfora for Sunday’s
Liturgy & 1 for Weekday’s Liturgy
Total: About 210 Prosfora per Year
What a blessing it is for someone to make a Prosforo for Holy
We need about 210 Prosfora every
year. It is an awesome responsibility for each family to offer something towards this effort. We can’t ask the same
ladies every other week to bake bread for us. Let us all participate in this task, to make it a little easier for them. Ask
yourself: What can I do? How can I help?
Could your family (if you don’t know how or, don’t have the time
to make a Prosforo) offer a small donation towards this endeavor? The cost is $8 per Prosforo or $32 per week. Money collected
for this effort (we want to make this very clear) will be used to purchase bread only from the Monastery of Agia Skepi=Holy
Protection of the Theotokos located in White Haven, PA (donation is tax deductible).
The sisters bake exceptionally
good Prosfora for $8 each. Because it is bread used for the Liturgy, it cannot be shipped. Thus, in the future, if anyone
plans to visit St. Skepi, please let us know: We will provide you the funds to bring back Prosfora for our beloved parish.
Prosfora can be offered for special occasions: Anniversary, Birthday, Memorial service, Nameday or, for loved ones struggling
with illness. When you offer Prosfora, you should submit the names of both the living and deceased to be commemorated by the
For any questions in this effort, please contact Father George or Presvytera Joanna Alexson.
Thank you in advance for your Kindness &
