Come, Receive the Light

Welcome to The Children’s Word, a weekly ministry of the Orthodox Christian Network brought to you by Presvytera Alexandra Houck!

This week, we celebrate Pascha, the feast of feasts! Do you remember the special song we sing for Pascha? Pres. Alexandra asks you to think about what it’s like to be in the dark. Is it hard to walk around? How do you feel when you can’t see anything? At Pascha, we celebrate the beautiful light of Christ in our lives. You can read about Pascha in this newsletter, and you can do a coloring page, get through a maze, and learn how to say “Christ is Risen!” in other languages!

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
