Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom. - Colossians 3:16
This year marks a great milestone in our history as we celebrated 25 years since the Orthodox Christian Network's founding. There is no more important time than now to “Let the Word of Christ dwell within us richly” to give us the courage and strength we all desire to meet the challenges we all face.
As we begin the year 2021, the Orthodox Christian Network is more relevant than ever and needs to be further developed to bring more digital resources to the faithful in the United States. Simply put, the myOCN Community offers the opportunity for our faithful to do three things: inspire Orthodox advocacy, connect to people worldwide and offer timely programs and resources. This Affiliated Ministry of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America has been a resource to assist our faithful in connecting to people 24/7, 365 days per year with the saving message of our Lord. Please share this fact with the faithful entrusted to your care.
During OCN’s Share the Light Sunday, on January 17, 2021, the Assembly of Bishops asks EVERY Orthodox parish in America to participate in our mission. MyOCN is YourOCN Community! Please join us in speaking about Orthodox Christian Network at church, passing a tray, and identifying an ambassador at your parish. We cannot do this without your support, financial and otherwise. Remember OCN in your parish’s charitable giving. Join with OCN now and contribute to strengthening the future of Orthodox evangelism and outreach in the Digital Age.
We thank you for your continued support of this vital ministry. Let us go forth and share the Good News.
Faithfully in Christ,
Episcopal Liaison to the Assembly of Bishops
Rev. Dr. Christopher T. Metropulos
