Real Break Trip To St. John the Compassionate Mission Begins Today
TORONTO, ONTARIO [St John the Compassionate Mission] The 2011 Orthodox Christian Fellowship Real Break Toronto team arrived safely today at St. John the Compassionate Mission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Led by diocesan priest, Very Rev. Fr. Miles Zdinak, the team of college students will join in the community life of St. John the Compassionate Mission to assist with serving those in need and perform necessary maintenance projects.
Diocesan faithful are invited to follow the progress of the trip by checking out the 2011 Real Break Facebook Page which will be updated on a daily basis.
The Real Break program provides alternatives to the "traditional" Spring Break for college students. It exists to provide students with the most authentic experience possible, and is modeled as a full Christian lifestyle, which includes fellowship, prayer within community, witness and service. Each Spring, over 100 students attend various trips, both domestic and international, to give of themselves to those less fortunate and to do something "real" for themselves and for God. OCF Real Break has been running since 2,000 with over one thousand students participating in these life-changing opportunities. Past and current trips include: Mexico, Guatemala, Jerusalem, Constantinople, Raphael House, St. Basil Academy, Greece, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Romania, Buenos Aires, Alaska, and more.
