Fall Young Adult Retreat at Camp Nazareth (10/29/17)

Camp Nazareth hosted the second Young Adult Retreat co-sponsored by the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Pittsburgh and our Diocese from Friday, 10/27 - Sunday, 10/29/17. Over 30 Young Adults, ages 22-35 roughly, gathered together for a weekend of fellowship, learning, prayer, quiet, fun, games, worship and good food. This was the second retreat co-sponsored together with the Metropolis of Pittsburgh. The next is scheduled for May 4-6, 2018.

The weather was cool and rainy but that meant more time talking and getting to know one another.
Great Vespers on Saturday. It was really nice as each jurisdiction represented at the Retreat sung and/or chanted a portion of the service.
Remember when we said this guy did something special...
...well, it involved the Church...
...and this fellow retreatant...
...he proposed in the Camp Church and she said yes!! Congratulations to Mark & Erika!! They had met at this Retreat back in the Spring and had been together ever since!
