Evening Prayer Webcast LIVE from OCR

The mission of the MGOCSM leaders during this lenten season has been to encourage members to learn the daily liturgical prayers during Lent, as well as observe the Sh’himo prayers the rest of the liturgical calendar. Every evening, various clergy and MGOCSM Council Members have been leading the broadcast of the evening prayers from their various locations around the nation. This project has been going strong since the Great Lent began.

This weekend is the first ever MGOCSM hosted Orthodox College Retreat (OCR). In an attempt to provide a sneak peek into the retreat for those who are unable to come, we have decided to broadcast the Evening Prayers on Vokle LIVE from OCR as well as show a brief devotional.This allows everyone to see a little bit of OCR while being able to follow along with evening prayer from wherever they may be.

This retreat will be held from Thursday, March 15 through Sunday, March 18. The evening prayers will be broadcasted LIVE on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the retreat. The evening prayer on Friday and Saturday will be followed short devotionals led by guest clergy. This broadcast can be accessed by following the link given by the Facebook group for the specified time at https://www.facebook.com/groups/239267339500977/. The link to the event will be posted a approximately 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the broadcast.

The times for the LIVE prayers are as follows (Times may vary a bit but this is the relative window):

If you are not able to make the appointed scheduled times for prayer. Vokle will automatically record the broadcast and make it available for everyone to view at any time that may be convenient for them. If you click on the link to the event posted in the Facebook group after the conclusion of the prayer and devotional, you will be able to see them in their entirety.
