Hey all
I'm hoping to go on the Real Break trip to Greece this year, and had a few questions:

1) What should I expect? How much like (or dislike) is it from Project Mexico (for those who have been there)?

2) What should I bring that's not on the list of stuff I should bring? What SHOULDN'T I bring that IS on the list? (after all, sometimes they're redundant :-P)

3) Anyone here going on that trip? It'd be nice to know a few familiar faces (screenames?) from outside my parish that are going:-)

I know this may be a complicated question, but how would one who has left the Orthodox Church and went to a Roman Catholic Church come back to the Orthodox communion? Would they need to go to the sacrament of Reconciliation or be re-chrismated?

Random question...if not just to liven up the forms...I'm just curious.

Tonight we had our annual Christmas Dinner where we all go over to our priest's house, his wife cooks us dinner and we just socialize for a while, and play with his kids...usually watch a movie, (but this time the movie we were going to watch was actually on yesterday instead of today...oops). Last year there was a really good turn out, and it was pretty much a full house, but this year the week changed and only 4 people could make it due to studying.

So on to the actual question... I was wandering if anyone else's OCF does anything cool at the end of the semester or for Christmas.

The Russian Festival is coming up over here at WMU, and we're trying to assemble some ideas for what to have the OCF table here. We have the standard set of icons, OCF flyers, and printouts of The Basil Leaf, and also a photo album of our activities. Do you guys have any other ideas?

San Jose State
we're thinking of starting an OCF at San Jose State University

we're currently waiting for our student contact to get back from his mission trip to Tanzania to get things started

but in the mean time, I was just wondering if anyone that reads here is in the San Jose area, and would be able to go once we start meetings.

we usually have little planning meetings during coffee hour at St Basil's Greek Orthodox Church. Feel free to get involved!

He holds a doctorate from Duke University Divinity School and has completed the St. Stephen's Course in Orthodox Theology. He lives in Abilene where he serves as a deacon at St. Luke Orthodox Church.

hey! I'm neither a college student nor orthodox, just yet, but I hope to be both by this fall =) I'm 17, from Little Rock, Arkansas, and I'll be going to The King's College in Manhattan, NYC this fall. I've been a neo-pagan - a Candombleiro...or a Santero if any of you know what either of them are, they're Afro-Carribean religions - and the relationship between their thought and liturgical christianity got me interested in Orthodoxy. I'm hoping to become a catechuman ASAP, and I look foreward to getting more involved with Orthodox Christianity, particularly when I get out of the bible-belt and into NYC. Just thought I'd say hello. *waves*

Handing out cookies & scripture in the dorms
This might be a good idea for OCFs to use in the dorms (although probably a bit late for this year): I just had a knock on my door tonight and was given a (just-baked! mmm) cookie or brownie and offered a Bible verse.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God and the peace of God that transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
Good luck on finals and God bless!!

It was sweet, especially coming right before finals week, when we're all stressing out. I hope our OCF gets to do something like this next year; it was really welcome.. at least in my room!

OCF in Lancaster, Pa
There is an OCF in Lancaster for Frankin and Marshal, Millersville, and PCAD. We meet at F&M's campus usually the 4th tuesday of every month at 9:30 pm. There's around 11 or 12 of us that attend each meeting lead by Fr. Alex.

OCF of UC Davis, Davis CA
hello hello

just wanted to bring the UC Davis OCF onto the radar

I'm the frazzled, sinful president

we have a decent sized group.... around 12, or so.... not all orthodox, and not all students either

but it's enough of a stable presence that the group stays alive, which is nice.

anyway, I look forward to hearing from you all :-)

Welcoming post :-)
Well, here goes for the first post!

I imagine this journal as a way of connecting different Orthodox Christian Fellowships--so that we can give each other ideas, invite each other to events, and ask for advice, especially when just starting out!

So feel free to join. If you want to post contact information for your OCF (which school, location, email, website, phone numbers, etc.) go ahead and I'll put those posts under "Memories: OCF Contact info."
