Your help is needed - message from the parish council
As you know, Father Vladimir is getting older and cannot drive by himself from New Germany to Halifax for church services anymore. We are looking for volunteer drivers who would drive him to the church and back home so that he could continue serving our parish. Fr. Vladimir already has arrangements to come to the city every last weekend of a month, and he is planning to take a Sunday or two off each month, meaning we need to arrange for his trips the remaining 1-2 times a month. Ideally, for each such weekend, one person should go to New Germany on Saturday, and another, on Sunday, so that we won't overburden our drivers. With 6-8 people in charge, each person would only have to make one long trip every two months or so.
For each weekend when Fr.Vladimir will be coming to Halifax, four separate rides will be required:
- From Fr. Vladimir's house in Pinehurst to the church for Saturday evening. It takes about 1.5 hours of driving one way. You should leave Halifax at 2:30pm, pick up Fr. Vladimir around 4pm, and arrive to the church before 6pm for Vespers. If he has something scheduled before Vespers, the trip will be shifted 1-2 hours earlier.
- From the church to the place where Fr. Vladimir stays at night (near Halifax Commons) after Vespers (7pm).
- From that place back to the church on Sunday morning: leaving Halifax Commons at 9:10am and arriving to the church by 9:30am.
- From the church back to his home in Pinehurst: leaving the church around 1:30pm and returning to Halifax by 3:30-4pm.
The parish will offer a $25 gas card for every long trip to Pinehurst.
Any help will be highly appreciated! Even if you can just give a ride in Halifax occasionally, it will help other drivers a lot!
Alina Kirsanova will be in charge of collecting information from possible drivers and making a schedule for the trips. Please contact her at driving (at) halifaxorthodox.org or by phone 902-830-7803 if you can give any rides to Fr. Vladimir, either on a regular basis or just occasionally, or if you are already planning to make a trip towards Bridgewater at any given weekend.
