Sunday, October 28, 2018 has been designated as Steward Sunday, during which parishes across North America will be taking special collections to support the Orthodox Church in America’s ongoing ministries.  Online donations also will be accepted with gratitude.

“Stewardship is not just a matter for parish and diocesan action… it’s personal,” explains His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon.  “Stewardship is really at the heart of our life and existence as Orthodox Christians.  In our own personal lives, in our parish communities, and in our families, we are constantly and sacrificially offering our small gifts, so that we may receive the great gift that God gives to us.”

Become a Steward by making a secure on-line contribution today!

“I invite all of you to join me and the members of the Holy Synod in offering our small and humble gift to God so that God may bless us with the great work that we all do together as the Church,” Metropolitan Tikhon continues.  “We work through our parish ministries, through our diocesan work, and also through the work of our departments, as they assist our missions to grow, as they help our youth to gather and share their faith, and to support all the departments and all of us in the Orthodox Church in America.”

For example, your gifts will help fund


These are just a few examples of the fruitful ministries that will benefit—and expand—tremendously through your generosity and commitment as Stewards of the Orthodox Church in America.

In the spirit of the theme of the 19th All-American Council, please join the ranks of those who already have made the commitment to expand the mission of the Orthodox Church in America by giving generously—“for the life of the world” and for its salvation—on Steward Sunday, October 28!
