OCF Responds to University of Texas in Austin Shooting
ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP -- Regrettably the instances of violence occurring on college campuses have increased in recent years. This trend continued today on the campus of the University of Texas in Austin where a gunman fired multiple shots prior to ending his own life in the Perry-Castaneda Library. Fortunately, no other injuries have been reported. Orthodox Christian Fellowship offers its prayers and support to those affected by this event and has begun taking steps to address the situation.
In consultation with OCF first responders, the OCF chaplain, Fr. Vasileios Flegas, Fr. Dave Lewis and members of the University of Texas OCF Chapter will be meeting this evening at Milto’s Restaurant (29th and Guadalupe, Austin) at 6:30pm
The Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) is the official collegiate campus ministry program under The Episcopal Assembly Of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in North America. Its mission is to support fellowships on college campuses, whose members experience and witness to the Orthodox Christian Church through community life, prayer, service to others and study of the Faith.
