What Can You Do?
 

Take Action Today!

We are all called by God to be good stewards of the gifts He has given us. As good stewards, we encourage you to:

  • Contact your fellow parishoners, your parish priest, your parish president, your parish treasurer, your parish council, your dean, your metropolitan council representative and your bishop about this website. Their email addresses are available at www.OCA.org Encourage them to read this website. Let them know you are concerned and want a full discussion of these issues as soon as possible.


  • Give generously to all charities supported by the OCA - but give the money directly to a specific mission, directly to the Seminary of your choice, or to the IOCC directly. Return every Appeal envelope from Syosset back to Syosset, with a notation - "I gave directly."
  • They'll know why! Encourage your parish, your deanery, your diocese to do the same until things change.


  • Give generously to support the OCA - but let them know you are not mailing your FOS check today, not making your bequest today, until there is a full discussion and resolution of these issues. Encourage your parish, deanery and parish institutions (sisterhoods, auxiliaries, etc. ) to do the same.


  • Participate in your parish council, your Diocesan Assembly and preparations for the AAC today! Encourage these bodies to directly address your concerns about the lack of financial transparency and integrity in the OC by putting it on the agenda and in the minutes. Encourage your Bishop to have a full and open discussion of these matters with his deans, clergy and laity.
