Where to start?

The Fellowship operates as a network of local chapters and individuals who are united in our Mission and Vision. The first step to getting involved is to start with prayer and study.

  • If there is a Chapter near you, reach out to the local Chapter Chair about attending a meeting.
  • If there is no Chapter near you, gather together a few Orthodox faithful to pray an Akathist, share a meal, and/or have a book study. You can reach out to our Membership Committee for ongoing support and resources. This is not a Chapter, but a good way to start.
