The Department of Youth Ministry will be hosting its Annual Lenten Teen Retreat VIRTUALLY for Teens in Grades 7-12 on Saturday, April 17th. The day will begin at 12pm EST and be split into two sessions, 12-3pm EST and 7-8:30pm EST. There is NO FEE to participate.
Our guest speaker, Fr. Joshua Makoul of the Antiochian Archdiocese, will lead a discussion on Finding Balance Through Self-Care and the Church. His Eminence, Archbishop Michael will also be with us for a portion of the day.
All Teens in Grades 7-12 are invited and encouraged to attend, including those from other OCA dioceses and Orthodox jurisdictions. Based on feedback from our Virtual Winter Retreat, there will be more opportunities for fellowship throughout the day!
Register here before April 16th. Please note that a link to the live Zoom sessions will be sent out closer to April 17th.
We look forward to welcoming both old and new faces! If you have any questions, email our Youth Department Chairperson, Danielle Geeza.
