The St. Innocent of Alaska Missionary Prayer Society supports the growth of the Holy Church in Alaska with weekly prayers and mutual encouragement in the love of Jesus Christ. The Society was officially inaugurated in 2000 at St. Innocent Orthodox Christian Cathedral in Anchorage, marking the 130th anniversary of the first meeting of St. Innocent's own Missionary Society.


"Thus, first and foremost, we must pray."
(Matt. 9:38)

st. innocent Membership in the St. Innocent of Alaska Missionary Prayer Society is open to all Orthodox Christians of all jurisdictions, and the cost of membership is simple: we must pray!

St. Innocent, in his address at the first organizational meeting of his own missionary society in 1870, asked: "What then shall we do? How ought we proceed when, in the words of the Gospel, the harvest is great in our country (i.e., many remain unconverted to Jesus Christ)?" St. Innocent then answered, "Pray to the Lord of the harvest. Jesus Himself teaches us (Matt 9:38); thus, first and foremost, we must pray."

Orthodox faithful who desire to participate should make the following commitment: once a week (preferably on Wednesday evening or Thursday, when the Church remembers the Apostles), either at home or in the church, to sing the Akathist with Molieben to St. Innocent, Enlightener of Alaska and Apostle to America, beseeching his fervent prayers before the Throne of God for continued apostolic and missionary labors in this northern vineyard. With Prayer of the faithful rising like clouds of incense over these holy mountains and glaciers, where so many saints have trod, surely the Lord will hear our cry!
