Come Receive the Light

Come Receive the Light was the first OCN program, and it remains the network’s flagship. Hosted by OCN’s Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Christopher T. Metropulos, the program tackles a variety of topics and perspectives on Orthodox and secular life, featuring interviews with guests from every jurisdiction and all walks of life. Come Receive the Light has been on the air for more than 17 years, and is best known and loved for its accessible, conversational style and inspiring outlook.
