Since my early days of pastoral ministry in the spiritual field of Africa, I have remembered the Orthodox Missionary Fraternity supporting the struggle of the Church of Alexandria…
- Patriarch Theodore II of Alexandria & all Africa
With meager means, your Fraternity began a struggle entailing many difficulties, pains and sacrifices. And today, you are on the first line of ministry to our poor, long suffering, disprivileged, downtrodden brothers by giving them the best and most valuable and by comforting them both spiritually and materially. And you pulled it off. You have faith and firmness in your aims and pursuits...
- Metropolitan Makarios of Kenya
We, the Ugandans, are grateful to your Fraternity as it was the first one to support the Church in Uganda, and has been by our side ever since at all costs, showing great understanding and admirable patience, being a modest helper and supporter throughout its course...More testimonies »

His Beatitude praised the importance of training indigenous staff for the missionary work of St. Mark’s Church throughout the African continent.
He invited the graduates to continue their ministry and testimony for Christ all over Africa, following the missionary life of the Apostles, and stressed that the Church needs laborers of the Gospel, for the harvest is plentiful. He affirmed that the Patriarchate will closely monitor their progress in their home countries’ church life and that he will fatherly assist them in their needs. Finally, he asked them to become ambassadors and messengers of the love they experienced during their two-year studies at the Patriarchate headquarters.
