Orthodoxy in the Outer Banks

As Wikipedia recounts "The Outer Banks (also known as OBX) is a 200-mile (320-km) long string of narrow barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina and a small portion of Virginia, beginning in the southeastern corner of Virginia Beach on the east coast of the United States. They cover most of the North Carolina coastline, separating the Currituck Sound, Albemarle Sound, and Pamlico Sound from the Atlantic Ocean.

The Outer Banks is a major tourist destination and is known for its temperate climate and wide expanse of open beachfront." It is also home to one inchoate mission caring for the people in that expansive area (a mix of seasonal employees and the locals that serve them). As a fundraiser they've trademarked an Orthodox take on the popular OBX decal seen all over the Northeast and are selling these 3" x 4.5" decals for $10. 100% of the proceeds go to Holy Myrrhbearers Orthodox Mission.

If you'd like to order one you can send a check to Holy Myrrhbearers Orthodox Church, 257 Caratoke Hwy Unit C Moyock, NC, 27958 or email here if you'd like to pay by Paypal or some alternate method.
