We are currently in the process of developing several various Outreach Programs for our Orthodox Service Members and their dependents.
Some of the projects that will be coming online soon are :
Parish Support Programs – Getting local parishes involved with supporting our Orthodox Troops. If you are a Parish Priest or Counsel Member and would like to find out how you and your parish can help our Orthodox Troops please email us and we will help you.
Great Lent Book and Survival Packages – We are looking for 20 Orthodox Service Members that are (overseas or stateside and are away from any Orthodox Parrish or support) and are in need of various Orthodox Books, Orthodox Study Bible, Icons, and other assorted accessories. If you would like to submit a Military member to receive a Survival Package please email us and provide us with their name, rank, branch of service and their current mailing address.
Orthodox Military Podcast Series – for Orthodox Military Members, their dependents, and our Military veterans and retiree’s on Ancient Faith Radio ( www.ancientfaith.com ). Our AFR Podcast Series “Orthodox Christians on the Front Lines” first aired on May 13th, 2010 ( Feast of the Holy Ascension ) . We have some wonderful Podcasts lined up by some very great quests hosts such as Fr. Peter Dubinin, Fr. Jerome Cwiklinski, Fr. Anthony Perkins, and Bishop Daniel of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA on subjects ranging from: Being Orthodox on Deployment, The Orthodox Soldiers Rights and Responsibilities for their Faith, and Army Chaplaincy Recruitment.
Home Catechetical Study Program – You can now support our troops and sailors with a gift of Orthodox books! It has been a slow and long process but SGOMA has been developing a Catechetical Program for our military to teach our Orthodox Christians the Holy Faith in more detail! This is also a program for inquirers to use to learn the Holy Faith!
Light & Life Publishing – World’s Largest Orthodox Supplier
Orthodox Pen-Pals – We are looking to establish a list of interested Orthodox Service Members who are interested in corresponding with other Orthodox people. If you are an interested Service Member please email us and will add your name to a correspondence list and will provide your mailing information with those who are interested in becoming your pen-pal.
Look for more outreach programs coming soon!
