The Companions of Christ Orthodox Catholic Mission work harder these days to help those in-need.

Christ brings more folks to be served at our mission doors every day. We are rewarded more with thanks and by seeing in their faces, the face of Christ.

We serve the homeless and the near homeless, the disenfranchised and marginalized, the poorest of the poor, the unseen, the unheard, and the unwanted.

Our mission and values draw directly from the Orthodox Christian teachings; Scripture, Liturgy, the Gospel and the Tradition of the Church. These Christian Orthodox values / visions are at the heart of what we do and who we are.

Since we believe each person is made in the image and likeness of God and has inherent dignity, we work with those living in poverty to have access to food, water, housing and other basic amenities which many of us can often take for granted.

How could we possibly be an apostles of the Kingdom – Thy Kingdom Come! Without wanting to go where Christ's good news is hardly known? We are "generalists" when it comes to ministry, and so from the beginning we have wanted to travel abroad to work in the "emerging Churches": in Africa, Middle East, Far East, Europe and America … Now these missions are forming their own clergy and becoming in turn missionaries.

It is thought to be virtuous not to have any preferences, but we at The Companions of Christ Orthodox Mission, we have one nonetheless. It's a preference for poor, in response to the Gospel and to the Church calling us today to be on their side. For us too, it’s a consequence of our own vow to live as poor men. Some will dedicate themselves full-time to this work: with marginalized people of every kind, in hospitals and in prisons, "worker priests" or volunteers in different organizations … But all of us try to live in union with the poor, because "the poor will always be with us", because the poor are too often neglected even within the Church.
