Elijah's Mantle has now grown into its third calendar year of service. During 2013 missions in Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, Colorado, Massachusetts, Virginia, South Carolina, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Texas, and Puerto Rico and Canada, have benefitted from donations to Elijah's Mantle.
We have benefitted from generous donations from many quarters. Father Anthony Perkins of Woonsocket, Rhode Island donated a large number of priests vestments that were smoke damaged in a fire last year. Through monetary donations Elijah's Mantle was able to procure a ozone machine which removed the smell of smoke from the vestments, and these have now found new homes. In all nearly twenty sets of priests vestments have been distributed.
An iconostasis which had been in storage at St. Tikhon's Monastery for many years has found a new home in a mission in Durango, Colorado with Father Benjamin Huggins.
A set of large brass banners and icons found their way from Father Daniel Degyansky of New York City to Father John Filipovich of Big Bend, Texas.
With God's Grace and your continued support Elijah's Mantle is poised to continue to fill requests for many years to come.
