During the course of the year, Fr. Christopher Metropulos, the Executive Director of OCN, travels to parishes and events around the country, sharing the story of OCN and its mission to bring Orthodoxy to all who long for it.
He is pictured here delivering a message to the faithful of the Assumption Cathedral in Denver, Colorado. You can invite Fr. Christopher to come to your parish or special event. He welcomes the chance to engage in conversation, to learn about endeavors in your community and help you connect with OCN as a partner in the important work of the church.
