Glory to Jesus Christ!
Well, OCF is off to an excellent start this semester! We have a good number of events planned for this semester and it should continue to be awesome! Hang with me for a minute and I'll run down the list of definite plans (chronologically).
[Webservant's note: This post has been edited to feature events open to all young adults in the Greater Cincinnati area. Meetings exclusive to the functioning of the Miami University OCF Chapter have been left out.]
-This Friday (1/27), YAL bowling in Norwood 7pm. YAL bowling in The Young Adult League (YAL) is a group of Orthodox Christians in the Cincinnati area who have begun to get a group together. Basically they are just having activities and hanging out (I went to the first event in December, it was fun!). Contact me if you're interested.
-Church this Sunday at 8:30. I'll be headed to the OCA church and giving rides. We should be back by 12:30. Let me know and I'll give you a ride!
-Father Mark coming 2/7 at 6:30pm. Father Mark Hodges has confirmed his visit for our meeting on the 7th. Brainstorm discussion topics and let me know. Also make sure you're schedule is free for that night, we need everyone to show!
-OCF Day of Prayer 2/27 at 4pm. The Day of Prayer is a national movement just to have constant prayer by members of OCF from around the country for a 24hr period. We signed up for that Monday at 4pm. More information on that later.
-OCF retreat at Dormition Monastery 3/30-4/1. Every year there is a retreat at Holy Dormition on the 5th week of Lent. OCF members from around the midwest gather for the weekend, it's really excellent! More information about that later.
There are a number of other things we're planning, visits from other priests, a trip to IU, social events. I'll let you know as the come up!
Thanks for your time!
Contact Daniel via email to join any of these activities and be included in OCF email news.
