This Sunday, February 18th, the last day before Great and Holy Lent begins, known as Forgiveness Sunday, is also Mission Sunday.
As we begin our journey toward Christ’s glorious Resurrection, please remind the faithful in your community that the salvation He made possible is to be shared with the world.
Please share the work of Orthodox missions and ask prayers for those who hunger and thirst for Christ and those who have answered the call to carry the truth of the Orthodox Faith to the world.
If anyone would like to be a part of the mission ministries of the Church, please have them reach out to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) by phone at 1-877-463-6784 or online at www.ocmc.org.
Volunteers for short-term mission teams and long-term missionaries are needed, but so are those who will make their work possible through their financial support.
Prayer for Missions
God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, hear our prayer for those who do not know You. that they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith, for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
