If You’re Happy and You Know It, Cross Yourself

We begin our month-long look at Children and the Church with Fr. Stelyios Muksuris of Dormition Greek Orthodox Church in Aliquippa, PA, and Professor of Liturgy and Theology at Byzantine Catholic Seminary in Pittsburgh, PA. He will offer us practical tips on how to engage our children in the services, how we can cultivate a sense of joy about worship in our homes, and how we can persevere as parents even when we have moments of fear or dread about trying to get our children to sit through a service. We also hear from Chris Vlahonasios, the founder and director of Byzanfest – the world’s first Orthodox Christian short-film festival which is entirely online. Learn more about his work on his blog.

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
