Dear Reverend and Very Reverend Fathers, Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I hope this finds you in good health and high spirits. We are delighted to share two upcoming events organized by our Diocesan Department of Youth Ministries and the Department of Religious Education that promise enriching and spiritually fulfilling experiences for our community.
Hosted by The Nativity of the Theotokos Serbian Orthodox Women's Monastery in New Carlisle, Indiana, this annual retreat is a fantastic opportunity for our college students to come together, connect, and deepen their faith. The retreat will provide an atmosphere of spiritual growth and fellowship that can be especially meaningful for our young adults.
