Orthodox Awareness Month
Situated at the beginning of the school year, Orthdodox Awareness Month is a time that the members of your OCF chapter can devote to both examining aspects of the Faith they wish to develop, and to being a witness to the faith on their campus. In our daily life it is important that we grow in understanding our faith, and are knowledgeable representatives of our faith when people have questions or want to learn more. This is also a good time to revisit complicated topics within the church, or even the basics, which some may have forgotten. All and all it’s a wonderful way to start off the year on the right foot as a strong, connected OCF!
