Panagia Koukouzelissa Choir profiled by OCMC

The work of our choir to raise funds for OCMC's SAMP program was mentioned in the article "Creative Ways to Support a Mission Priest" on the OCMC website. The article states 

Nikolia Rallis, 2010 OCMC Team member to Romania, organized a choir to record a CD of Orthodox hymns. All net proceeds from the sale of this CD will benefit the SAMP program. For the past four months, her choir named the "Panagia Koukouzelissa Choir" has worked diligently to record a CD containing the hymns of Holy Saturday. The CD, which is in the final stages of preparation, is entitled Arise, O God. According to Nikolia, “Our desire to make such a CD grew out of several goals, including: to support Orthodox missions, to help the faithful understand the service of Holy Saturday, and to expose people to traditional Byzantine music in English.”Arise, O God is available for purchase by visiting www.koukouzelissachoir.org.

At this point we are happy to share the news that our CD sales have raised funds sufficient to support FIVE indigenous priests and their families in missionary communities around the world! Glory to God!
