BROOKLINE, MA — Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF), the official college ministry for all twelve (12) jurisdictions of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops, encourages all parishes to participate in OCF’s Orthodox Awareness Month (OAM).

Throughout the month of October, the purpose of OAM is to raise awareness about Orthodoxy across college campuses, enabling students to grow spiritually and to be witnesses for their faith. It is also an opportunity for parishes and individuals to donate for the continuation and growth of OCF.

During this year’s OAM campaign, OCF has already collected over $12,000. Parishes and individuals are encouraged to help OCF in reaching its goal of raising $50,000 by the end of October.

OCF transforms the lives of college students in the United States and Canada by guiding them along the path to Jesus Christ through His Church, cultivating a campus community of worship, witness, service, fellowship, and education.
