ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP MINISTRY
In January 2015, Fr. Sotiri and Presvytera Stefanie rekindled Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) at Ascension, a national collegiate campus ministry program charged with keeping Orthodox college students connected to each other, and to the Orthodox faith, while they are away at school.
Caity Anast is Ascension's parish liaison for OCF and will provide Parish students (via email) information about college scholarships, camp counselor opportunities, college conferences, and much more. To receive information and stay in contact, please email Caity at firstname.lastname@example.org.
