Oratorical Festival Donations

Oratorical Festival

The Saint John Chrysostom Oratorical and Fine Arts Festival


2023 Donations

The expenses involved in hosting the Metropolis Festival increase with each passing year; however, we remain committed to investing in our youth and providing them with a forum to enhance their knowledge of Orthodoxy. Currently, our Metropolis is the only one to offer such a range of categories, and with your help, we can continue to provide innovative opportunities for our youth to express their faith. 

We ask that you consider including this year’s Metropolis Oratorical Festival as a recipient of your philanthropic giving. With your help, we can once again organize a memorable program for our youth and their families—one that will strengthen their faith and warm their hearts. 

For 38 years, participants, parents, and parishes have experienced the impact of this powerful program. We aspire to share this rich, inclusive tradition with future generations and are grateful for your generous support.

We encourage you to share the Donation Letter and Donation Submission Form linked below with any friends who may wish to support the Festival.
