The parable of the Good Samaritan is told by Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. It is about a Jewish traveler who is stripped of clothing, beaten, and left half dead alongside the road. A priest and then a Levite comes pass by, but both avoid the wounded man. Finally, a Samaritan happens upon the traveler. Samaritans and Jews despised each other, but the Samaritan helps the injured man. Jesus is described as telling the parable in response to the question from a lawyer, "And who is my neighbor?" In response, Jesus tells the parable, the conclusion of which is that the neighbor figure in the parable is the man who shows mercy to the injured man—that is, the Samaritan.

 The  Good Samaritan Fund at St. Gregory's is used to assist our neighbors who need help paying their utility bills.  In 2018, the Good Samaritan Fund contributed $5,317.25 to families who needed assistance, and $2890.52 as of August 6, 2019.   100% of your donation to the Good Samaritan fund goes to the needy in Enid; there are no administrative fees.  Your support of this fund enables St. Gregory's to help local families.  

To make a contribution to the Good Samaritan Fund, notate in the memo area of your check that the donation is for this purpose.  You can also place your contribution in an envelope with the fund name written on it.  If you are a registered parishioner (with an assigned envelope number), your contribution to the Good Samaritan Fund will be noted on your year-end tax statement.
