It is a great sacrifice on your behalf, taking off work, traveling to
Raleigh etc and there is no one more grateful to you than Antonios! Thank you!!!
(Matthew 8:19-20) "Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”
Update: MAY 30, 2018 -
Antonios secured legal counsel using the phase:1 gofundme.com donations and he has received back limited visits with his daughter of 5 hours a week in public places.
He continues to fight an uphill battle to return to shared custody. The only cited reasons remain focused on religious and ethnic differences. He still hopes to overcome these so that he may resume caring for his daughter and one day attend the Divine Liturgy again together.
The previously postponed hearing has been rescheduled for July 17th, 2018.
Please join with us in praying for Antonios and his daughter Mary!
Through the generous support of 240 people in just 4 days we reached our phase 1 goal to help Antonios! This petition has already received over 3,000 signatures!
The response was incredible.
On behalf of Antonios, we would like to personally thank you for passionately supporting his rights as an Orthodox Christian father.
What's next? Antonios will receive the funds electronically through the withdraw process to support his legal fees as promised, and with secured legal counsel he will prayerfully fight to defend his rights!
You have given him much encouragement!
Stay tuned for updates on his case and courtdates on the petition website located here:
Please continue to beseech God for justice, although our eyes are set on the world to come.
Christ is Risen!
