Orthodox Service from the Heart
OCCM Mission is our global mission outreach arm. OCCM Mission partners with existing mission groups to plan annual mission trips where participating OCCM students learn the work of a missionary, participate in ministry and mission efforts, and bring many encouragements from this ministry back to their local chapter and parish.
