UD Orthodox Christian Fellowship
Orthodox Christian Fellowship at the University of Delaware

St. Michael the Archangel Orthodox Church is proud to support the Orthodox Christian Fellowship at the University of Delaware.

The OCF seeks to unite students and faculty in the study and practice of ancient Christianity. Through prayer services, Bible studies, missions trips and fellowship, the OCF is a haven for members of the University community who desire a deep relationship with Jesus Christ.
We invite you to join us Tuesday evenings when school is in session at 7:00 pm at St. Thomas More Oratory, 45 Lovett Avenue, Newark, DE, for our weekly meeting of worship and fellowship!

Transportation from the university to St. Michael's Church for Divine Liturgy on Sundays is available. Please contact Fr. James Weremedic, OCF Spiritual Advisor at (302) 995-6775.

About OCF

Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) is the official campus ministry effort under SCOBA (Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas). Located in Boston, OCF is a Pan-Orthodox effort, overseen by an Executive Committee and aided by an 20-person Student Advisory Board. OCF guides and supports local OCF chapters through communication with the larger Orthodox Community, National Programs, and development of resources that Orthodox college students and those interested in Orthodoxy can use.

OCF is a member of SYNDESMOS, the World Fellowship of Orthodox Youth, a federation of Orthodox youth movements and theological schools around the world, working under the blessing of all the local canonical Churches, to serve the Church, Her unity, witness and renewal. The aim of SYNDESMOS is to develop cooperation and communication among Orthodox youth movements and theological schools around the world, and to promote within them a deeper understanding and vision of their common faith.

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

St. Michael's is part of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, which is presided over by The Most Reverend Mark (Maymon), Archbishop of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within Wilmington and the local area.

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
