How can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?
Romans 14

Beloved Clergy, Godly Monastics, and Blessed Faithful:

We greet you during this great and joyous Feast of Theophany in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Christ’s earthly ministry begins with His baptism by St. John the Forerunner and the proclamation of the Triune God, “This is my Son in whom I am well pleased.” Today we write you to renew our appeal to you to assist in the media ministry missions outreach of our faith. To join Christ’s ministry as disciples of the 21st Century.

Now more than ever the people of this world need to hear the word of God in a profound and meaningful way. ​By the Grace of God we have the Orthodox Christian Network - to inspire the faithful everywhere; raise up our children; call back the wayward; and reach out to our cities and towns with the joyful, Christ-centered message of the Orthodox Christian Church.

In parishes across the country and in homes around the world, millions of youth, families, priests, groups, and those yearning to learn more about the Church visit the Orthodox Christian Network every day. ​As an official agency of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America, the Orthodox Christian Network (OCN) comforts, inspires, interacts and informs Orthodox Christians and seekers through Digital Media.​ OCN invites you and your congregation to ​get involved and join us at ​www.myocn.net​ w​ith our live streaming Rudder Byzantine chant station, The Anchor talk radio station, news programs, blogs, live weekly social media programs, and popular online orthodox community. Join on the conversation on myOCN Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Spotify, and YouTube.

During the Orthodox Christian Network’s 23rd Anniversary, the Assembly asks every Orthodox parish in America to participate in a Share the Light Sunday. Please spread the word about this ministry, and remember OCN in your parish’s charitable giving. ​OCN is not financially underwritten by any one organization, jurisdiction, or individual. Rather, OCN is supported entirely by parish, organization, and personal donations.​ When your parish supports OCN, you contribute to strengthening Orthodox evangelism and outreach in the Digital Age. Become an OCN parish today!

On behalf of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops, we thank you for your continued support of this vital ministry. Let us go forth and share the Good News.
