Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I have exciting news! This week, the Orthodox Christian Network surpassed 500,000 Facebook fans, making our ministry the largest Orthodox Christian presence on the internet. Thank you! Because of your support;

  • – Our programs have a weekly reach of five million people on Facebook.
  • – 75% of our fans are under the age of 34.
  • – OCN is watched, read and listened to in 196 countries.

Please join us in celebrating this tremendous success by giving to the “10 Cent A Day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Help us continue our mission of comforting, inspiring and informing the next generation of Orthodox Christians, persecuted Christians and faith-seekers around the world.

On behalf of all of the Orthodox Christian Network, I thank you for 20 years of support for our beloved ministry.

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
