Charity bazaar on January 6-7 in Essen

Here, in the parish of Sts. Cosmas and Damian in Essen, it has become a good tradition to hold a charity bazaar on the feast of the Nativity of Christ! This time, we have collected EUR 1,100 for the care-receivers of the Diaconia: Yana Labun (8 years old) and Alexey Sebov (2 years old).
We heartily thank the inspirers, helpers, participants and donators.
We thank everyone who made the dumplings, baked gingerbread, prepared the cakes, knitted the socks and hats for sell, have set the things up and sold everything.
Holding a bazaar also helps to wake up people for the parish life; more and more volunteers are willing to help.
