Make a donation for the Chruch

Call for donations to restore the crypt

We ask for your donations for the restoration of the frescoes and paintings in the crypt of the Notre Dame de la Dormition church. These frescoes and paintings on wood were damaged as a result of water infiltration into the crypt. Major work to insulate the crypt, and to drain rainwater around the church, helped solve the water infiltration problems. It now remains to restore the damaged frescoes and paintings.

Click on the video to see the appeal of Monsignor Jean de Doubna, metropolitan leader of the archbishopric of the churches of Russian tradition in Western Europe. The conservative restorer of painted works, anticipated for the carrying out the work with a team of five other restorers, explains why this work is urgent and essential and presents the provisional timetable for their realization (if we arrive to raise the necessary funds). Make a tax-free donation online by clicking on the link below the video or on the button in the banner at the top. Even the smallest donations are welcome.

Make a bequest

To bequeath to the Church of Our Lady of the Dormition is to give it the material resources in the future to continue his mission of evangelization, education, charity, prayer. Considering a legacy is one way of opening up to a possible sharing to which Christ has called us. It is also a last way to continue to do good, as we have done throughout our lives, a last donation, an even stronger donation. They are essential for the material life of the Church and for being able to develop new projects.

Conversely, you can freely dispose of the rest: the available portion. Thus, if you have a child, the available quota is 1/2, if you have two children, it is 1/3 and if you have three or more children, the available portion is only 1/4 of your estate. In the absence of a child, your spouse is reserving a quarter of your estate.
