Ft. Lauderdale (September 13, 2007) – Orthodox Christian Network is honored to announce our first international release of our weekly radio program, Come Receive The Light.

Starting Sunday September 16th Come Receive The Light will air in Nassau, BAHAMAS, on Joy 101.9 FM every Sunday at 6 PM. We are able to have this very first international release of our weekly program because of the generous gifts of several families in the Bahamas who have worked hard to bring our weekly witness to our precious Orthodox faith to their country.

We are also thrilled to add another national release of the program in Springfield, Vermont, Sunday mornings at 8 AM on WCFR 1480 AM. This is another local parish that has worked with us to bring the program to their local community.

Fr. Chris Metropulos, founder and director of OCN said, "These two new releases of our weekly program demonstrate the future and the growth of our media witness for the Church. With our first international release in the Bahamas and a new release in Springfield, Vermont, we are continuing the ministry of using media to pull back the curtain on the rich beauty of Orthodoxy for America and the world."
