We need volunteers to help us to serve breakfast at the Shelter.
We are a community of Orthodox Christians from all over the Detroit area committed to serving Christ through service to the needy in our city (Mt 25.14).
Our goals are simply to love God and love others (Mt 22.37-40). Recognizing the image of God in every person (Gn 1.27), we will always strive to serve with humilty, compassion, patience, and above all, love (1Co 13).
Our purpose is to extend the Church beyond the confines of the parish and bring it into the local community. We will do this by bringing Detroit-area Orthodox Christians together to perform the work to which Christ called his Church: to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, to look after the sick and visit the incarcerated, to welcome the stranger, to give everything we have for the benefit of those in need.
Orthodox Detroit Outreach will strive first and foremost to fulfill the Gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ, being faithful to the Apostolic teachings and Living Tradition of the Orthodox Christian Church. We seek to be known by the fruits of our ministry.
We will actively and in an ongoing manner strive to assess the needs of those within the greater Detroit metropolitan area, providing through various ministrations towards the material sustenance and spiritual aid to those in need.
We will serve the churches of our area by providing both local and coordinated ministries aiding those in need, and offering an educational and experiential resource as requested.
