Suprasl is a worldwide network that aims to bring Orthodox youth together to experience the unity and universality of the One Holy Church, to encourage and support eachother in their faith in Jesus Christ, and ultimately to teach them how to witness the Good News of our Lord and Savior.
Suprasl is an attempt to meet together in times when the Orthodox Church is struggling with unity and struggling to place itself vis-a-vis national, ethnic, political powers. It is a simple attempt to live our unity; to live what unites us; to live what gives us joy; to live what inspires us, and then to bring it home, to share it with all those around us.
Suprasl does this by organising three types of events each year:
Through these projects we ultimately aim to answer the question posed nearly seventy-five years ago by Orthodox theologian Nikos Nissiotis, "What are we, the Orthodox, going to do to avoid our sickness, namely, our indifference to one another?" While asked in a different time and context it remains as relevant, if not more so, today than it did in 1949.
We invite you to view our projects below and and join us in this ministry either as a participant or a supporter. To learn about supporting Suprasl with a financial gift please see here: www.suprasl.org/pledge
