A Day of Learning and Fellowship at the Altar Server's Retreat in Endicott, NY - 06/20/24
Last updated: 2024-06-20 21:13:00

On Saturday, June 15th, the Ss. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church in Endicott, NY, hosted the New York State Deanery Altar Server’s Retreat, led by His Eminence Archbishop Michael. The event brought together 1 Hierarch, 11 Priests, 3 Deacons, 4 Subdeacons, and 40 Altar Servers for a day of spiritual enrichment. The day began with Altar Servers greeting and assisting in vesting His Eminence for a beautiful Hierarchical Divine Liturgy, during which they learned various responsibilities. Following the liturgy, a delicious luncheon allowed for fellowship among clergy, altar servers, and the congregation.

In the afternoon, younger Altar Servers learned about the Altar, Liturgical Items, and Priest Vestments with His Eminence, while older servers focused on vesting procedures with Subdeacons and Readers. The retreat was a joyful and successful day, especially for the enthusiastic Altar Servers who did a great job. Building on this success, another Altar Server Retreat is scheduled for June 29, 2024, at Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church in Wayne, NJ.

"Glory to Thee, O God, for all things!"

Nurturing Faith: The Impact of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Program on Young Orthodox Christians - 06/19/24
Last updated: 2024-06-19 23:00:13

By Olga Ptach

Several years ago, Archbishop Michael blessed an educational program for 3-6-year-olds which was developed at St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Seminary and then brought to the parishes of the NY-NJ diocese in 2019. Since then, this program, called the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS), has been training volunteers to go back to their home parishes and establish an atrium (classroom). The most recent of these trainings took place on June 3rd through 7th, 2024, on the grounds of St. Tikhon’s Seminary.
