OCMC News - Project for “Life”: When Ideas Come to Reality
by Christina Semon (Posted 10/29/2012)

On the 27th-28th of October 2012, priest wife Anastasia Cislaru of The Nativity of the Theotokos parish in Ucrainca, Moldova, organized the “Seminar for Life” for fighting against abortion. The seeds for this idea were planted when Preoteasa Anastasia participated with Christina Semon, OCMC Missionary, in the first priest wives’ retreat in June 2012, where a workshop was dedicated to small parish projects. After a few months of planning, Pt. Anastasia’s wish came true. The guest speaker for this event was Ana Maria Macuc, a school teacher and wife of a priest from Romania. The result of the event was beyond the organizer's expectations with an attendance of over 50 people from different professional backgrounds as well as students. Even more so, the active dialogue and involvement of the participants motivated them to continue to engage in this major issue in their local communities and with all those they come in contact with. Pt. Ana Maria gave a compelling presentation and, in addition, raised up other leaders in this village to carry on the message.

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.
