COLLEGE STUDENT SUNDAY IS OCT. 6; SUPPORT THE MINISTRY OF O.C.F.!
Archbishop Michael is asking that a special collection be taken on College Student Sunday -- October 6, or another October Sunday at the rector's discretion -- in support of the good work of OCF (Orthodox Christian Fellowship). The Assembly of Bishops and OCF encourage the entire faithful family—clergy, parents, grandparents, godparents, aunts, uncles, and friends of our treasured college students—to be generous in your offering of support to this ministry on their behalf. Your support enables OCF to open and maintain its Chapters and Chaplains on college campuses, to be an integral part of students’ spiritual formation by challenging them to explore the Faith and to inspire students to commit to living an Orthodox Christian way of life daily. Donations may be sent to the OCF National Office, 50 Goddard Avenue, Brookline, MA 02445 or made online at www.ocf.net/donate.
