National Philoptochos Supports 2010 OCF Trip to the Patriarchate

NATIONAL PHILOPTOCHOS SUPPORTS
2010 OCF TRIP TO THE PATRIARCHATE

 

The National Philoptochos Society provided support for the second year in its partnership with the Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) for the Real Break Program in Constantinople from March 13 – 20, 2010. 

Rev. Mark Leondis, Chairman of the OCF Board, led seventeen enthusiastic college students and leaders who traveled to Constantinople as part of the Third Orthodox Christian Fellowship’s Real Break Program.  Real Break is an OCF program that serves as an alternative to Spring Break, offering our students on the college campus the opportunity to do “something real”.  .

His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew assigned the group to the Holy Metropolis of Chalcedon, under the spiritual jurisdiction of His Eminence Metropolitan Athanasius, to work on two cemeteries.  The first cemetery was in the Scouteri region and the second cemetery was outside the Church of St. George.  For four days the students and leaders worked to restore the cemetery as they cleaned, scraped, cemented, re-constructed graves and tombstones, weeded and dug up roots.
