ROOF’sOrthodoxChristianleaders

Prayer is the beginning of all good things, all fruitfulness. The charitable organization Russian Orphans Opportunity Fund, for instance, begins its efforts at educating Russian orphans with prayer, http://www.roofnet.org/pages/newsdetail.php?recordID=5 especially in their strategic planning sessions: http://www.roofnet.org/pages/newsdetail.php?recordID=99 (annual general meeting) http://www.roofnet.org/pages/newsdetail.php?recordID=101 (Baranovo Retreat)

ROOF’s patron saint is St. Catherine the Great Martyr. http://www.roofnet.org/pages/page.php?ref=about|ROOF%20in%20detail|patron%20saint

Their leadership includes clergy and Orthodox Christians: Fr. Peter Kolomeytsen, chaplain and ethics teacher at ROOF’s post-orphanage education center: http://www.roofnet.org/pages/about_staffdetail.php?id=18 Fr. Stephen Pratt, United Kingdom board of trustees member: http://www.roofnet.org/pages/about_staffdetail.php?id=56 Andrew Williams, chairman of the United Kingdom Board of trustees: http://www.roofnet.org/pages/about_staffdetail.php and Georgia J. Williams, chairman of the United States Board of ROOF http://www.roofnet.org/pages/about_staffdetail.php?id=2

The orphans they seek to educate and integrate out of grim institutional settings into Russian society include numerous persons with disabilities, especially at their orphanage in Belskoye-Ustye. http://www.roofnet.org/pages/page.php?ref=projects|orphanages|belskoye%20ustye Unfortunately, funds are lacking. Consider supporting them.
