The 5th Annual Diocesan Altar Servers Retreat was held at Saint Basil Academy in Garrison NY from Friday, 6 February to Sunday, 8 February 2015. Over fifty participants were present for all or part of the weekend. Altar servers and clergy came from each of the three deaneries (New Jersey, New York City, New York State) as well as from the Carpatho-Russian Diocese. His Grace, Bishop Michael, together with six priests, a deacon, a sub-deacon, and a tonsured reader led the retreat. The participants enhanced their skills as servers at the Lord's altar and learned about the history and theology of the Divine Liturgy. They are now prepared to better assist during the divine services in their home parishes.
