IOCC Sunday: A Day Of Sharing!
Nov. 20, 2016
IOCC Sunday: A Day of Sharing is designated each year by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America to highlight the humanitarian outreach of Orthodox Christians through their official agency, IOCC. The observance of IOCC Sunday is an opportunity for parishes to focus on the meaningful change that your support brings to families devastated by disaster.
Here are some ways to participate::
- Encourage Your Parish to Participate: Talk with your priest about the IOCC Sunday Encyclical available here to download from the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America, include materials in the Sunday bulletin, and take a special collection for IOCC.

- Get Youth Involved: Organize an emergency-kit drive and arrange for the young people in your parish to help assemble them (iocc.org/kits), or host a small IOCC fundraiser (bake sale, angel tree, spaghetti dinner – be creative!).
- Set Up an Information Table: A brief presentation paired with an IOCC table display during coffee hour is a great way to show your continued support. Contact an Outreach Coordinator (410-243-9820; firstname.lastname@example.org) to request items like posters, prayer booklets, brochures, icon cards, and magnets.
