Outreach & Service

The FOCA sponsors a number of outreach and service projects.  Our annual United Fund/St. Andrew's Appeal provides financial support for Orthodox Seminaries, missions, youth ministry, and national scholarships.  Individual contributions over $100 are considered "Friends of St. Andrew."
