2012 Great Lent Giveaway
With the blessing of the Council of Bishops of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA we would like to announce that the 2012 Great Lent Giveaway will benefit the Ukrainian Orthodox Church High School Mission Trips. In 2003, our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church began providing short term missionary experiences for teenagers!
These life-transformative trips are a unique opportunity for the teenagers of the church to serve others as Christ did. The 2011 Jr UOL Convention Body chose to support these trips by initiating a grant to aid trip participants financially. The Consistory Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministry is working with the Jr UOL through the Great Lent Giveaway to bring together all youth of the church to realize this goal as well as educating our youth about Orthodox missions work.
The 2012 High School Mission Trip will be to St. Augustine, FL to work with Orthodox Christian Mission Center and give aid to the poor in the local community.
This year a new youth group session teaching our youth about Orthodox missionary work and the vital role of missions in the church, will be provided each Wednesday during Great Lent. You may download the first session now at www.uocyouth.org.
Be sure to read the Great Lent Giveaway How To, before you begin.
Any monies collected may be sent to
