Orthodox Christian Brotherhood Students Sunday scheduled for October 3, 2021
The Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America has designated October 3, 2021 as Student Sunday. On this day, Orthodox parishes recognize and honor their Orthodox students and hold a special fundraiser to support ministry to Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) students.
Dn. Marek Simon, Executive Director, shared the following: “In a recent meeting with the 16 members of the OCF Student Board, I was filled with enthusiasm and encouragement as I witnessed for their love and enthusiasm for the OCF. I am inspired by the work of these young adults to bring their peers together for fellowship, service, worship and education. On Student Sundays and throughout the year, your partnership facilitates our ministry to these students. We call on parishes and individuals to provide opportunities and hospitality to students, and through financial support from our ministry.
OCF, the official agency for ministry on campuses of the Assembly of Bishops, continues to support a network of over 300 campus chapters, while providing dynamic programming through local and regional retreats, opportunities Virtual for Students, College Conference, Real Break and the Summer Leadership Institute.
