Mission Sunday Greeting from the Orthodox Christian Mission Center

Orthodox Christian Mission Center (12/21/2011)

 To the Most Reverend Clergy, Venerable Monastics, and the Devout Faithful of the Holy Orthodox Churches in the Americas:

Greetings in the Lord! The Resurrection of Christ, and the subsequent coming of the Holy Spirit, made possible the establishment of the Church. For 2000 years the Church has shown as the light of truth in our world, served as a hospital for those seeking salvation, and called all humankind to a deep intimate relationship with God.

Simply put, the Church seeks to improve the human condition by restoring humanity’s connection to the Father through the Son with the Holy Spirit. The concept of improving the human condition is big indeed; but it is one way of grasping the scope of Christian mission work.

The Church, in witnessing to the truth of salvation in Christ, demonstrates His love by addressing the physical and spiritual needs of those suffering in darkness. It is this witness, and the many forms it takes, from evangelism to outreach, that can serve as an invitation to others to accept Christ (God’s ultimate expression of love for humanity) through the Holy Sacraments.

As Orthodox Christians, we believe that it is through Christ that our journey of repentance begins and ends; and it is through true repentance in Christ that we will know the joy of eternal life. This is the ultimate aim of missions and the greatest gift that we, as Orthodox Christians, have to share with the world.

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center is your community’s resource to engage in this most vital work of the Church. In 2012, the Orthodox faithful of North America will have the opportunity to share Christ with people in over 20 countries around the world through prayer, by supporting mission priests, teaching catechism, providing healthcare, building churches, working with youth, and much more.

Mission Sunday falls on February 26th this year. As this date approaches, please consider sharing the mission materials and opportunities contained in this packet with your community and let us know how we can assist you in answering the call to make disciples of all nations. We pray that you have a blessed Lenten journey and a joyful Pascha.

With Love in Christ,

Fr. Martin Ritsi

Executive Director
