As SGOMA enters this new year we will be working on expanding our Ancient Faith Podcasts to include new episodes from our various Orthodox Chaplains and Orthodox Military Members stationed around the World.
SGOMA is also ramping up our Great Lent Survival Packages. If you know of someone who is deployed or will be deployed, in Iraq or Afghanistan, over Great Lent and Pascha please send us their mailing address and SGOMA will put together a survival package and send it to them. If you would like to sponsor a Great Lent Survival Package for someone you know, or for any Orthodox Military Member deployed in Iraq or Afghanistan, you can send us a donation for the package. The general donation is $50.00, this includes the cost of the contents and shipping ($12.50 – APO Priority Mail).
SGOMA is also in the process of trying acquire MP3 players to ship off to our Military folks. These MP3 players will include Divine Liturgies (Slavic, Greek and Western Rite), Interviews, Stories and much more. Keep tuned to SGOMA’s Facebook page as well as this Blog site for more details about this new ministry outreach in the near future.
As always, SGOMA needs your support to continue to find ways to reach out and assist our Orthodox men and women serving in the US Armed Forces around the World. We realize that the economy is bad, and many other charities are seeking your donations as well. However, we would welcome your donation, not matter the size. Will you assist us? For more information about how to donate to SGOMA please view the “Donation” page on our website at: http://www.orthodoxmilitary.org/Donations.html
Again, we would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year – 2011! Please continue to keep our Men and Women in the US Armed Forces in your prayers!
