OCMC News - You Supported 3 Mission Priests - Can You Support 3 More?

OCMC News - You Supported 3 Mission Priests - Can You Support 3 More?

This October, we made it our goal to fully fund 6 indigenous Orthodox priests in the mission field!

By funding them through the Support A Mission Priest program, we will free them up to focus less on their own needs, and more on ministering to their Church communities. How much does it take to fund the needs of a priest in the mission field? $50 per month. That just comes out to $600 to cover the needs of a priest for an entire year!

Over the course of October, we challenged you – our supporters – to help us fund 6 priests for a year. To fund 6 priests for an entire year, we just need to raise $3,600.

If you’ve been following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, you know that we’ve been sharing the stories of some of our priests with you. Among these were Father Zachariah, who ministers to 6 different communities in Kenya and continues to reach out even more; and Father Hierotheos, who serves as a missionary priest in Kenya, traveling around and ministering to many different communities.

Around the world, priests like these work hard to share the love of God with the world around them. If we all work together, it only takes a small donation from each of us to join in their efforts and greatly bolster their ministries.

So far, we’ve raised approximately half of our $3,600 goal. Will you help us raise the rest? To contribute, you can either visit our fundraiser page on Facebook, or donate directly through our web site:

A little bit goes a long way in the SAMP program, and we are eager to help our mission priests grow the Church around the world. Please consider a donation to help us reach our goal, because none of this is possible without your help. Thank you for all your prayers and support!

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.
