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.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I have exciting news! This week, the Orthodox Christian Network surpassed 500,000 Facebook fans, making our ministry the largest Orthodox Christian presence on the internet. Thank you! Because of your support;

  • – Our programs have a weekly reach of five million people on Facebook.
  • – 75% of our fans are under the age of 34.
  • – OCN is watched, read and listened to in 196 countries.

Please join us in celebrating this tremendous success by giving to the “10 Cent A Day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Help us continue our mission of comforting, inspiring and informing the next generation of Orthodox Christians, persecuted Christians and faith-seekers around the world.

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

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
