Go forth and teach all nations,

baptizing them in the name of the

Father, and of the Son and of the

Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe

all things that I have commanded

you; and Lo, I AM with you always,

even unto the end of the world.
(Matthew 28:19-20)


The Council of Orthodox Christian Churches of Metropolitan Detroit is a cooperative organization of clergy and laity, established in 1957.

Our mission is to promote the Orthodox Christian Faith in the region through worship and fellowship, offering a variety of charitable, educational and outreach programs.  Additionally, we work with our parishes, across all canonical jurisdictions, striving to enhance and strengthen their efforts and ministries.  We invite and encourage you and your parish to become active in the COCC!  Help us better live the ancient Faith in a modern world, serving one another and our great city as a more vibrant and dynamic organization.
