Youth Retreat to Occur in February

The Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania (OCA) will conduct a retreat led by Steven Christoforou (of the popular “Be the Bee” podcast) at Christ the Savior Church in Harrisburg on Friday and Saturday, February 8-9. The retreat is open to school children ages 12 and older.

To promote fellowship among our own students and to have the opportunity to engage with Orthodox students from other parishes, the parish’s Sunday School and Orthodox Youth Association are inviting your children to attend the retreat. Participants will depart from Holy Trinity at 4:30 p.m., stay overnight at the parish in Harrisburg (bring your sleeping bags), and return following Vespers in Harrisburg on Saturday.

While the majority of the trip’s costs will be assumed by the parish, the suggested donation is $15 to cover part of the registration fee and transportation costs. If you are interested in attending, please contact Deacon Mark. After RSVPing with Deacon Mark, you may download and complete a release form for your child to bring prior to the event.

Chapel of the Holy Spirit to Break Ground this Month

Clergy and Chapel faithful gather in 2014 to plant a cross on the lot. Construction of the building will begin in June.

All are invited to join Fr. John and the faithful of the Chapel of the Holy Spirit in breaking ground at their new temple’s location on N. Kern St. in Beavertown this Sunday, June 28 at 12:30 p.m.

The ceremony follows the 10 a.m. Divine Liturgy at the MACC (67 Elm St., Beaver Springs) and continues with a light lunch reception a block away at Dn. David Smith’s home (350 Old Orchard Dr.), which served for many years as the community’s original meeting location.
