Seminary Van Fund Drive
By unanimous consent, the delegates to the 69th UOL Convention held in July in Coatesville, PA resolved to repay the $16,000 loan that was taken by the Seminary to purchase a 12-passenger van to be used as transportation for the seminarians of St. Sophia’s. At its first full board meeting on August 20 held at St. Sophia Seminary, the National Executive Board decided to pay off the loan immediately using UOL general funds so as not to incur any additional interest charges, and to also immediately launch a National Fund Drive to replenish the UOL accounts.
The Board underscored that support from all UOL Chapters, UOL members and indeed all UOC of USA parishes will be essential
for the success of this Fund Drive. All agreed that our Church is indeed blessed to have such a wonderful group of seminary students, and trust that our members will pitch in to quickly achieve the goal of raising the funds to support this payment.
