OCMC News - Collecting Coin Boxes on September 1st!

by Niko Birbilis (Posted 6/9/2020)

OCMC News - Collecting Coin Boxes on September 1st!
Don't forget to send back your OCMC Coin Boxes on September 1st!

Every year we try to send out OCMC coin boxes by Mission Sunday so they can be distributed at the beginning of Great Lent and collected on Palm Sunday. This year when we sent them out, we had no idea that the outbreak of COVID-19 would drastically affect these plans! Just as many of us have had to work, study, and socialize remotely, we’ve had to attend most of our Lenten and Paschal services online as well. As a result, most churches never had the chance to collect their coin boxes and send the proceeds to OCMC!

Because of that, we’ve decided to extend the coin box collection date to September 1st, in celebration of the first day of the Church New Year! If you still have your OCMC coin boxes, please continue to fill them with your spare change - and every time you drop a coin in, please say a prayer for our missionaries. On September 1st, bring them back to your parish so they can collect the funds and send them back to OCMC.

The offerings that you collect are needed now more than ever as life in the mission field slowly returns back to normal. Thank you so much for your support! The money raised by these coin boxes will go a long way in supporting Orthodox Missions - especially during these difficult times.

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.
