Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry Awareness Sunday is almost here! This year the date is May 17, 2015. Please join in raising awareness and support of the Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (OCPM), an Agency of the Assembly of Bishops, on this day.

Jesus told His sheep: “I was in prison and you came to Me” (Matthew 25:36). Not all of us can go into the prisons directly, but we can all support those who do this work.

What can you do?

·Volunteer to promote OCPM on May 17 in your parish, with the blessing of your parish priest. Your parish should have recently received a packet of OCPM materials.

·Print OCPM materials to hand out to parishioners after the Divine Liturgy.

·Share the Prison Ministry Awareness Sunday Encyclical, written by Archbishop Mark and Fr Stephen Powley.

·Make a secure donation to OCPM in any amount.

·Tell a friend about OCPM.

Thank you for helping us grow this vital ministry of the Church!
