Mar 19, 2014 Comment(s) Tags: ,

It is hard to believe the first week of Great Lent has already concluded! Things have been dynamic here at St. Catherine’s, and I wanted to witness to a few experiences from this week to the glory of God.

Once the monastery was open to visitors again on Thursday, it gave me my first opportunity to tour the sacristy museum and view my very favorite icon of Jesus Christ, the Pantocrator of Sinai (below), amongst other invaluable treasures of iconography such as St. John’s Ladder of Divine Ascent (below), metalwork, manuscripts, and embroidery.

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
