Share the Light Sunday

Please stand with us as we seek to share our timeless Orthodox Christian Faith with the world! Make a parish contribution to OCN in 2015, and tell the faithful of your parish about The Orthodox Christian Network.

On January 18th we begin our Share the Light Sunday Campaign for 2015. Your parish can support OCN in a number of ways:

  • Read the 2015 Encyclical and Pass a tray on a Sunday Morning.
  • Share with everyone OCN’s 10 cent a day campaign. With 100% of your donation going to mission, not overhead, our goal is to expand our programming for Parishes, Lay Leaders, and Parishioners.
  • Add OCN as a line item into your annual parish budget.

When leading your parish’s effort for Share the Light Sunday, we invite you to make use of the additional materials below to help you in raising awareness about the mission, vision, and programming of The Orthodox Christian Network.

The Orthodox Christian Network is a commissioned agency of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States that is in place to comfort, inspire, and inform Orthodox Christians and seekers around the world. OCN is not underwritten financially by any one organization, jurisdiction, or individual. Rather, OCN is supported entirely by parish and personal donations. Please remember OCN in your parish’s charitable giving. The Orthodox Christian Network is a 501(c)(3) corporation.


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
