In July 2018, as the Orthodox Church in America gathered in Saint Louis, MO for the 19th All-American Council, we witnessed an outpouring of support to fund the youth ministry of the OCA.  In a matter of ten minutes, a spontaneous floor drive realized donations and pledges of over $80,000.00 as parishes and individuals came forward to make their financial commitments to this most worthy cause.

Many of our young people were so moved by this outpouring of support that they recorded short thank-you videos to express their gratitude. We share those videos with you now.

As we continue to expand the mission of the Orthodox Church in America, and as we anticipate the celebration of 225 years of Orthodox Christianity on the North American continent in 2019, the need for more youth activities—as well as expanded resources for parish choirs and mission communities, additional Christian Education materials, and other departmental efforts—is as important now as ever.  In July we were able to raise over $80,000.00 in just ten minutes.  How much can you help the Orthodox Church in America raise today—Giving Tuesday?

Please help support the effort to expand the Church’s mission and ministries by donating today through the Stewards of the Orthodox Church in America to our youth, our choirs, our mission parishes, our Church School programs and all the ministries of the OCA.
