Dear OCDA Members,
Blessings during the Dormition Fast!
I pray this email finds all of you doing well. Over the last month, the OCDA has received a lot of contacts from various individuals and organizations. Ancient Faith Radio graciously did a Public Service Announcement for us and we are scheduled to do an interview with St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary later this month. Thankfully, the OCDA is being well received by the greater Orthodox community. Please keep sharing the news!
What needs to be done?
It is imperative that we continue to strive to connect our Orthodox deaf and HOH to each other. One way we plan on doing this is by offering monthly online gatherings for all of our members to attend.
This Sunday, August 9th, at 7 pm Fr Jason Foster is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting "Meet and Greet."
Topic: OCDA and You!
Time: Aug 9, 2020 07:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
Join Zoom Meeting
I hope you can join us!
How you can help?
We need everyone to keep reaching out to your clergy, the deaf and HOH community, and others about the OCDA. Please continue to recruit those that know or are learning ASL. Also, our FB Page needs to become a place where we interact between Zoom Meetings. If you have not already, please join our FB Page - Orthodox Deaf. Our plan is to discuss forming a FB Group during our Sunday "meet and greet." Lastly, if possible, visit our website www.OrthodoxDeaf.com and download the OCDA flyers and place them around your missions, parishes, Deaf Action Centers, etc. It all helps!
Thank you for your prayers and continued support. God willing, Savannah and I will see you this Sunday. Please do not hesitate to contact us as needed.
Fr Jason Foster
