Central Regional Lenten Retreat Well Attended
HOMESTEAD, PA -- The first of three regional Diocesan Lenten Retreats was held yesterday at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Homestead, PA. Sponsored by the National ACRY, the retreat drew more than 100 participants. Usually held at Camp Nazareth, this year a decision was made and blessed by His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas to move the retreat to the Pittsburgh, PA region, out of concern that the early date of Lent this year, might cause some travel concerns due to possible inclement weather.
An excellent presentation was made by Rev. Fr. Stephen Loposky, the Administrator of Camp Nazareth on the topic, Accepting the Mercy of God, what to do when Great Lent isn't so Great, who spoke to the adults and teenagers in attendance. Very Rev. Fr. Miles Zdinak, the pastor of Sts Peter and Paul Church in Windber, PA led a discussion and interactive workshop with the children present on the topic : You are the Light of the World
Very Rev. Fr. Robert Buczak and the faithful of St. Nicholas Parish
were gracious hosts, providing both continental breakfast after the
opening All Souls Saturday as well as a lenten luncheon.
