Metropolis of New Jersey Chapter Fund Commitments

Metropolis of New Jersey Social Service Program Fund
(October Ministry Commitment)
Restricted funds for the payment of bills involving basic needs and medical costs of those in need.

Emergency Social Service Tray Fund
(March Ministry Commitment)
Restricted funds earmarked for those in critical need for immediate assistance for
heat, food, and shelter as the priority. Also reserved for the payment of bills involving
funerals and emergency medical care.

Camp Good Shepherd Fund
(April Ministry Commitment)
For the benefit of Orthodox children who wish to attend camp but are not financially able to do so.
No child should ever be in the position of not being able to attend the camp.
Children who participate in the CGS experience the love of all those around them and their respect and understanding of their Orthodox Faith is strengthened,
while making friendships that last a lifetime.

The Metropolis Of New Jersey Office Fund
(June Ministry Commitment)
Our Metropolis Center in Westfield, New Jersey, is our HOME.
The fund is maintained by the Philoptochos as we seek to promote the
Metropolis Center as the center of our faith and the Metropolis family.
The fund assists in our efforts to sustain the enduring belief that the headquarters of the Metropolis of New Jersey belongs to us all and we must do our part to keep it as the focal point of our ecclesiastical, worship, administrative, educational and cultural activities.
It is a place where we can go to meet, greet and extend our hospitality
to all those welcomed to the Metropolis of New Jersey or to simply light a candle in our Chapel
dedicated in honor of our Metropolis of New Jersey Patron Saint John Chrysostom.
The Center contains the Office of The Metropolitan, The Metropolis Library,
The Reception Room and all Administrative Offices.
