An Orthodox Priest with 70 Children

Assigned to an unremarkable village after seminary, Fr. Nikolay decided to do something big. He organized the building of three Orthodox churches, an Orthodox school, and a charity house with expansive facilities.

In addition to all of that, over the years Fr. Nikolay and his wife have adopted 70 orphans, raising them as their own.

Check out the RT documentary to learn more about their story, and to see footage of the gorgeous churches and charitable facilities they have built in their small town.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
