Food and the Holidays

As we gather with our families to give thanks for God’s many blessings, we take a moment to remember those less fortunate than we are. Nick Chakos, Executive Director of FOCUS North America, and long-time board member Theodora Polamalu join Fr. Chris in discussing the urgent need in this country, as well as several FOCUS programs that are making a huge difference in people’s lives. But first, many of us may not realize that the Thanksgiving feast we look forward to is a source of severe anxiety for others. Marina Abdel Malak shares her experience as a recovering anorexic with us, offering tips about how we can be sensitive to those with eating disorders or dietary restrictions during the holiday season. Marina also shares her insights at Anorexia Recovery.

Greetings in the Lord!

With the support of people like you, the Orthodox Christian Network is making a measurable difference in reaching the younger generations. Here are just a few facts about our ministry’s success:

The Orthodox Christian Network is the largest Orthodox Internet presence in the world—by far! Our programs are shared with 500,000 OCN Facebook fans every day. 74% of them are 35 or younger. 38% are 24 or younger.

Help us take advantage of this tremendous success and expand our ministry over the summer. With one week left, we’ve almost reached our Summer Fundraising Goal! But we need your support TODAY to reach $15,000

Donate to our 10 Cent A Day Campaign and your gift will go toward reaching 10 new people around the world. 100% of your donation goes to mission, with 0% to overhead.

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

Rev. Dr. Christopher Metropulos, Orthodox Christian Network Executive Director
