Among the more prominent activities that Synergy sponsors, coordinates, or supports, are:
The annual Pan-Orthodox Thanksgiving Eve Liturgy.
The Sunday of Orthodoxy Pan-Orthodox Vespers.
Department of Children and Family Services annual Christmas gift program.
Weekly religious advertisements in the two major Chicago newspapers.
