Burden of supporting the orphans
Bishop Dr. Philemon, and the ministry, has had the burden of supporting the orphans and the widows in their distress according to the scripture in the book of James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
