2013 Lenten College Retreat

St. Herman's is honored to host the 2013 Diocesan Young Adult Lenten Retreat, which will be held on the weekend of St. Mary of Egypt, April 19-21.

Our keynote speaker, the well-known Orthodox youth worker and speaker Turbo Qualls, will be coming from California.  His talk is entitled: "Let us attend: the Pursuit of Wisdom is the Pursuit of Christ".  In addition, Professor Elias Reeves will be speaking on the topic: "Orthodox Christianity as a radical answer to a secular humanist society".  Both talks are expected to inspire lively discussion.

In addition to the Great Lenten divine services and the talks, the retreat offers a short service project as well as time for fellowship, small-group activities and spiritual discussions.  Priests will be available for confession and spiritual counsel, and retreatants will have the opportunity to sample the life of a family-like, rural parish community.

Registration is now open to college students and older - those who consider themselves young adults.  All events will take place at or near St. Herman Orthodox Church, 126 Reese St.,Lake Odessa, MI, 48849.

Register by e-mailing villagepriest@gmail.com (subject line: "Retreat registration") or calling Fr. Michael at (616) 374-8596.  The $100 fee is all-inclusive (lodging, meals, etc.)  Limited scholarships may be available.
