OCMC Trek 4 Missions

OCMC Trek 4 Missions

Beginning with the Feast of the Dormition (August 15) and in preparation for the Feast of the Holy Cross, Fr. Martin and Fr. Stephanos Ritsi will trek over 225 miles for 2 weeks in the High Sierras, climbing up and down over 80,000 vertical feet, and celebrate the Divine Liturgy on top of the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States at 14,500 feet above sea level. Fr. Martin is hiking to raise funds and awareness so that OCMC can recruit, train, send and support the missionaries who in obedience to the Lord are taking up their cross and following Him to the ends of the earth to preach the Gospel (Mark 8:34).

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.
