OCMC News - 2 By 2: Katie Wilcoxson's Interview of Two Priests from Two Different Continents

OCMC News - 2 By 2: Katie Wilcoxson

Video of a Skype session that the parish and Church school children, of Saint John the Forerunner, where my father is the parish priest, Father Aidan Wilcoxson, did with my teammates, our parish priest, Father Spyridon Kaizilege, of Holy Apostle's parish in Bukoba, Tanzania.

If you have 11 minutes to indulge in something very goofy (and, in a lot of ways, very touching), this is a video of a Skype session that the parish and Church school children, of Saint John the Forerunner, where my father is the parish priest, Father Aidan Wilcoxson, did with my teammates, our parish priest, Father Spyridon Kaizilege, of Holy Apostle's parish in Bukoba, Tanzania, several of our Tanzanian friends, and myself.

Practically, though, the experiment might also prove helpful to priests and folks who work with young people throughout the world since the Saint John's parish used a (free) Skype session on their bookstore computer right after Divine Liturgy (around noon their time); as you can hear in the video, that's about 9:00PM Tanzanian time. But my team and I would love to talk with other communities in the same way, and it's a wonderful opportunity to learn about Orthodoxy around the world (and the interesting things other Orthodox Christians eat). Those who are interested in doing this can contact me at k.wilcoxson@ocmc.org.

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.
