Diocesan Missions Commission Meets in Farmville, VA

FARMVILLE, VA --  The members of the Diocesan Mission Commission  are meeting today in Farmville, Virginia, at the location of  a proposed new mission parish.  In recent months, interest has been expressed in establishing a mission parish in southern Virginia.  In recent weeks, through personal contacts and by establishing a presence on Facebook,  a total of 18 Orthodox families living in the Farmville, Virginia area have been identified. 

There has been a renewed interest and focus on mission and evangelization within the diocese since last Summer's Diocesan Sobor.  Since that time  new missions have been established in Murphy, NC, Hampton Roads, VA, Columbus, Ohio and now, God-willing in  Farmville, VA.

Diocesan Faithful are urged to keep our new mission parishes in their prayers as well as the members of the Mission Commission as they labor to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord to Baptize All Nations. 

To learn more about our diocesan mission parishes and how you can assist them through donations of liturgical items or by offering monetary assistance please visit our mission parish profiles and needs page
