Young adults and college students are encouraged to register now for Orthodox Christian Fellowship’s [OCF] 2019 “Real Break” experiences.

OCF is the official campus ministry of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America.

Real Break provides an alternative to “Spring Break” and aims to prepare college students to be socially informed Orthodox Christian citizens of this world while directing their focus on the world to come – the Kingdom of heaven.  Built on a foundation of fellowship, education, worship, and service, Real Break provides students the opportunity to understand the true meaning of seeing Christ in the other by traveling to all parts of the world to deepen their faith, serve those in need, and cultivate relationships with like-minded peers.

OCF will offer nine Real Break experiences in March 2019 to Romania, Albania, Houston, Project Mexico, Jerusalem, Thessaloniki and Alaska. OCF will also offer two summer 2019 trips to Mount Athos (male only) and Jerusalem (female only).

Registration costs vary according to destination.  Limited scholarships are available for those who qualify.

Further details and registration forms are now available online.  Questions may be addressed to OCF’s National Programs Manager, Donna Levas, at or 617-850-1227.
