Recent Update - Oct 17, 2013
The Government Shutdown is over and our permit has been reinstated. The 2013 Monumental Missions Walk will be held as planned this Saturday, Oct 19th starting at 9am. We are looking forward to a truly monumental event complimented with perfect fall-time weather.
About the Walk
On October 19, 2013, Orthodox Christians from around the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area will converge on the National Mall for the inaugural Monumental Missions Walk. Sponsored by the Metropolitan DC Orthodox Christian Mission and Outreach Committee, the Monumental Missions Walk is a 3-mile long spiritual stroll past some of the Nation’s most important landmarks.
At each designated monument along the route all participants will learn the spiritual significance of the landmark and to provide insight into the role that religion has played in the history of this great country. The Monumental Missions Walk will afford participants the unique opportunity to pause and admire these important places of reflection through the unique lens of faith.
In addition to providing participants with this unique opportunity to explore America’s treasured landmarks, the goal of the Monumental Missions Walk is to raise money to provide medicine to people in need. Half of proceeds raised will support the Orthodox Christians Mission Center’s (OCMC) efforts to support orthodox mission work and to provide essential medicines as part of its ministries across the globe. The other half of proceeds will be donated to a local D.C. charity.
The success of the inaugural Monumental Missions Walk will depend on the kindness and fellowship of Orthodox Christians in the Washington, D.C. area.
