OCMC’s SAMP Spotlights

with 2 comments

I recently noticed that OCMC (Orthodox Christian Mission Centre) is now highlighting on their blog a different priest every month that is supported through their SAMP program. The SAMP program (Support a Missionary Priest) allows individuals and churches to financially support poor, indigenous, Orthodox priests around the world so that they may have the time and energy to serve the liturgy and preach the gospel. Nearly 400 priests are supported in this way. If you would like to learn more, you can visit OCMC’s website here.

This month’s priest is Fr. Christos Sarkar (pictured with his family). Fr. Christos serves in India, at St. Thomas Orthodox Church in Arambagh Hooghly.

You can find more pictures of SAMP priests, and other OCMC news, at their blog, here.
