Saint Raphael's Building Fund


We are currently worshipping in a beautiful chapel that the Franciscans of Quincy University graciously share with us. We hope to buy or build a proper temple of our own for the worship of God, soon. 

So, we've established a building fund for that purpose. 

Currently we have several fundraisers ongoing for that purpose. 

First, the women of the parish have a ETSY shop where we sell craft patterns in pdf format, so you can have the pattern and begin either knitting or stitching without delay. The link is in the sidebar here. 

Second, one of our members wrote a novel about the life of the Theotokos and the early Church. All net proceeds from the sale of that book, A Mother's Eyes, come to the building fund. 

Third, we have  program at Amazon Smile. When you shop at Amazon, we would appreciate if you would shop through the Smile program and name us at the organization for your support. Amazon will then pay us half of a percent of all sales. The link is in the sidebar on this page.

Fourth, we have an electronic "scrip" program with Benefit Mobile in which people can buy electronic gift cards from their phones and use them at popular restaurants and shops as well as in online stores. Download the app from

Fifth, we will always gratefully receive donations towards our building fund. Use the donate button here, or send us a check to the parish PO Box.  St Raphael Orthodox, PO Box 115, Quincy IL. 62306

As we do other fundraising projects, those will be listed here.
