Orthodox Christian Fellowship

University of Minnesota


About our Student Group

We are the University of Minnesota chapter of Orthodox Christian Fellowship!

Our goals are:

  • To build a community of Orthodox students both on- and off-campus to support each other in both their academic and spiritual endeavors

  • To help students grow in their faith using various learning and engagement opportunities

  • To create cross-cultural unity by promoting pan-Orthodox friendships and education


This semester we are looking forward to hosting meetings in-person again! 


On the events page, you will see our upcoming meetings. Click on a meeting to view the event details and RSVP! RSVPs are helpful to the board for planning purposes, so please try to RSVP to meetings you plan on attending. 


Welcome to our website!

Here you will find event information, announcements, services, and more!

Join our GroupMe by messaging ocf@umn.edu! This will be used for meeting updates and reminders, in addition to acting as an informal space that we can stay connected throughout the semester.

National Opportunities

OCF National has so many opportunities for students to participate in! These opportunities include webinars, small groups, and chapel. We hope everyone has a chance to plug into both local and national events!
