May 13, 2014 Comment(s) Tags: , ,

OCN Executive Director Rev. Dr. Christopher Metropulos was invited to attend a press conference in Washington, DC, sponsored by two members of Congress, calling attention to the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, especially in Egypt, Syria, and Iraq.

Christian leaders from around the nation were present at the event, and several spoke to the gathering about the importance of addressing the terrible plight of Christians internationally. They also issued and signed a pledge to stand by these Christians and seek help for them.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

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
