Support 10 Mission Priests this SAMP Month!
It's Support a Mission Priest Month again!
Every year, OCMC dedicates October to supporting priests worldwide through our Support a Mission Priest (SAMP) program.

This year, we want to raise $6,000 to support 10 mission priests for an entire year!
Despite all the challenges they face, indigenous priests in the mission field continue striving to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with their communities. SAMP gives us the opportunity to partner with them, and offer our support to their ministries! Please consider even a small donation to help us reach our goal. Every donation helps!
Your support will help the ministry of priests like:

Support a Mission Priest:
Every day, indigenous priests in the mission field follow in the footsteps of the apostles, spreading the message of Christ's love where people hunger for the peace and truth of the Orthodox Faith. Many are responsible for presenting the Gospel to people for the very first time. Many pastor several communities. Many are seen as THE source for help in times of need. And, many have families of their own.
The Support a Mission Priest Program (SAMP) of OCMC provides a subsidy to help these priests share the Faith, care for their communities, and provide for their families. For just $600 ($50 per month) churches, organizations, and people like you can support a priest serving in the mission field for an entire year by helping to subsidize his income!
