OCMC News - YOU are Invited to Join the Sts. Cyril and Methodius Society
By becoming part of the Sts. Cyril and Methodius Society with a recurring gift to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center, you can help ensure that more people around the world will be reached by the ministries of the Church. For as little as $50 per month you can provide healthcare to those with little access or train catechists that will teach about the Faith.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Thank you for your continued support of Orthodox missions. Last year, contributions to the OCMC insured that over 370 priests in the mission field received support. Donations to the Mission Center helped send more than 140 short-term mission team volunteers, and they sustained 26 missionaries and their families living and working in 8 countries.

Yes, YOU made the witness of the Orthodox Faith possible, but more importantly, this witness brought people into the Church! YOU helped grow the Body of Christ! YOU helped transform the lives of thousands of people with Christian love!

This work is obviously important to you. That is why I am writing you today. The mission efforts of the Church in growing through the OCMC. In 2019, the Mission Center’s ministries are expanding into Colombia, South Korea, and Sweden. We are partnering more intensely with Project Mexico, even bringing some of their staff on as OCMC Missionaries!

As these initiatives grow, and as we take the Gospel to more and more people, missions will need regular ongoing support from people like you who know how vital the Orthodox Faith is to the world!

Currently 6% of people who support missions through the OCMC make a regular monthly recurring gift to sustain the ongoing efforts of the Mission Center. This select group of donors comprise what is known as the Sts. Cyril and Methodius Society. We have a goal to increase this number to 10%, and we are inviting YOU to join.

A monthly commitment of $50, $100, or more will insure that the missionary witness of the Orthodox Church continues to grow. Will you be one of these precious 10%? If so, we can train and send more long-term missionaries and grow the number of short-term teams that we send every year!

A commitment of just $50 per month can get 8 people lifesaving healthcare, underwrite a youth ministry, or train 4 catechists who will teach the Faith to hundreds each and every year!

As a gift of thanks, we will send you a small Ss. Cyril and Methodius icon magnet and a window sticker so you can show your support for missions and as a reminder to pray for the continued intercessions of Sts. Cyril and Methodius on behalf of those longing for salvation in Christ.

We pray that you had a blessed Lent, and in the days leading to Pentecost, please visit https://donate.ocmc.org, make a contribution, and check the “Make this a Recurring Gift” box. Thank you so much for all that you have done and will do, and for your continued prayers!

In Christ,

Fr. Martin Ritsi
Executive Director

PS – Join the Sts. Cyril and Methodius Society with a recurring gift in support of Orthodox missions and be the 10% of people we need to grow the Church’s missionary outreach.

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.
