Paschal Letter

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” 1 Corinthians 15:5

Christ is Risen!

We at the OCPM would like to wish you and yours a blessed Pascha!

At this most holy time of year, we are reminded yet again why Christ is center to our lives as Orthodox Christians. His sacrifice and resurrection has conquered death and given us life. Let us continue to honor Him by following His holy word.

Orthodox Christians have always been charitable and understand the importance of their generosity in sustaining and growing the vital ministries of our Church. The OCPM is deeply appreciative of all the support we have received over the years.

We humbly ask this Pascha for continued and new support from our fellow Orthodox community by your prayers and generous givings. We are charged by Christ Himself in Matthew, Chapter 25, to help the “least of them” among us; when you do this, you do it to Him. Among those whom Christ names as the least of them are those in prison. By your support and by the dedicated work of our clergy and lay volunteers, this mandated ministry of our Lord can be provided.

Please visit theocpm.org/donate to support this ministry. This often unknown or forgotten mandate of our Lord to visit Him in prison is accomplished both personally and collectively as an Orthodox community when we give. You provide the icons, study bibles, prayer books, correspondence courses, and devotional materials needed to support the Orthodox Christians in prison or those prisoners who desire a Christ-centered life.

God bless you and your family this Pascha! Truly He is risen!

In Christ,

The OCPM Team
