Building Expansion 2018


Welcome to the Church Expansion Information and Fundraising Page

With God's blessing, our parish has nearly doubled in size over the last 7 years! Average Sunday attendance in 2011 was 75, today it is 139 and we are continuing to grow. With this increase of parishioners, our beautiful cemetary parish is in need of expansion. The proposed renovation will nearly double the size of the existing nave and narthex.

Because the expansion of the church will essentially eliminate our current Parish Hall, a new construction is proposed to create a new hall to foster fellowship within our church community. The full walk-out basement will provide us with much needed space to hold church school classes. A larger bookstore and church sponsored events are among the future possibilities.  

In the short term, our parish needs to raise at least an additional $50,000 to begin work on this project. 

Giving is easy - we have set up three simple methods to accommodate your preferred way of donating:
    1. Envelopes at Church - pick up a donation envelope in either our onsite bookstore or on the candle counter.  Clearly mark the envelope "Building Fund" and leave your donation in the basket on the counter.

    2. Mail - send donations to the fund to:
      St. Xenia Orthodox Church Building Fund
      P.O. Box 147
      Methuen, MA  01844-0147
    3. Paypal - use your paypal account, or donate with your credit card
