OCMC News - It’s SAMP Month Again!

by Niko Birbilis (Posted 9/30/2019)

OCMC News - It’s SAMP Month Again!
Father Zechariah serves several communities in the Turkana region of Kenya, and continues to reach out to even more people who have yet to hear the Gospel message.

Every year, OCMC dedicates the month of October as SAMP (Support a Mission Priest) Month!

The SAMP program currently supports 378 indigenous priests in 16 different countries worldwide, as they work hard to establish and grow their local churches. In many of these areas, each priest is responsible for several communities, as the Church grows faster than clergy can be trained. It’s not easy, but they’re doing God’s work, and many of us have the blessing to participate by supporting them.

Over the course of SAMP Month, we will be featuring a few of these mission priests and sharing their stories with you! Follow our social media feed on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to learn about them and to get a glimpse of the work being done by the Church all around the world.

All it takes to support one priest’s ministries is $50/month or $600/year. This SAMP month, we’re aiming to raise $3,600 – or enough to support 6 different priests for an entire year!

Please consider either a one-time donation to help us towards our goal, or a recurring donation to grant ongoing support to a priest in the mission field. Click here to donate to the SAMP program.

The missionary vocation of the Church is all of our responsibility, and only by working together can we carry out Christ’s great commission to “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

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.
