Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. – The Orthodox Christian Network will be featuring several special programs for Holy Week and Pascha on its Web site (www.MyOCN.net), including the first episode of a new Web TV series, beautiful liturgical music for Holy Week and live Web TV broadcasts of every Holy Week service.

"There will be many special features on www.MyOCN.net intended to supplement and deepen everyone's journey through Holy Week," Fr. Christopher Metropulos, Executive Director of the Orthodox Christian Network (OCN), said. "We pray that you will take advantage of these programs, and share them with family, friends, fellow Orthodox Christians and seekers."

This weekend, visitors to www.MyOCN.net will be able to watch the first episode of a new Web TV series called "Tuning In To The Faith." This television series will focus on issues that affect Orthodox Christians in the modern world. The first episode includes an interview with His Grace Bishop Savas of Troas on the persecution of Christians in Turkey, the status of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the Ecumenical Patriarch's newest book and more.

Also starting this weekend, all of the Internet radio stations produced by OCN will feature beautiful sacred music from the Orthodox Christian liturgical services of Holy Week. Listeners will be able to hear new selections each day. For example, the music that will be playing on Friday of Holy Week will feature hymns from the traditional services celebrated on Great and Holy Friday in Orthodox Churches throughout the world.

Throughout Holy Week, visitors to www.MyOCN.net will also be able to watch the Holy Week services that will be celebrated at St. Demetrios Church in Fort Lauderdale. These will be available in a live stream, and also available on-demand in a special archive.
