Fr. John Parker, the new chairman of the OCA's Department of Evangelization, describes how his parish, Holy Ascension Orthodox Church in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, went from having a handful of believers to being a lively and growing body of Christ.
"As an Eastern Catholic (Melkite), I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your site. The music is beautiful and uplifting, and the messages are food for my soul. Though we are still separated, I still feel a deep love and affection for my Orthodox brothers and sisters. May our Blessed Lord reconcile us as one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church as a testimony to a world that is perishing and needs us! Thanks again!"
