Orthodox Mission Sunday is on March 10th, 2019

This year, Mission Sunday falls on March 10th. In the coming weeks, we will be sending you a packet of materials that detail some of the mission work the Orthodox Church in the United States will be doing in 2019 through the OCMC. In this packet will also be an order form for coin boxes and Sunday School lesson plans – both are great ways to engage the youth of your parish in missions. If you would like someone from the Mission Center to visit your parish on Mission Sunday or sometime during Lent, please call us at 1-877-463-6784 or e-mail us at missions@ocmc.org.

Repose of Bishop Athanasios Akunda

Today, on the feast day of the 70 Holy Apostles, His Grace Bishop Athanasios Akunda, Bishop of Kisumu and Western Kenya, has fallen asleep in the Lord. Bishop Athanasios was truly an exemplary modern-day apostle. How fitting that it would be this day that he would join the host of Apostles in the Kingdom of God.In the Gospel of Luke (Luke 10:1-16) we read of how the Lord sent His holy apostles two-by-two into every city and place, saying, "The harvest is great, but the laborers...

Learning to Love Like Virginia

Thank you for providing me with this opportunity to learn and serve in Kenya. It was an eye-opening experience to how that part of the world works. In Kenya, I found that I experienced every emotion given to mankind. From heavenly tears of joy, brought on by the seminary choir who seemed to join heaven to earth in each service we celebrated, to tears of sadness, brought on by the horrific stories of abuse and choices the young people we met were forced to make just to survive. The Kenyan...

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
