JR ACRY Visits St. John The Compassionate Mission (7/8/17)

From July 5 -7, 2017. A delegation from the National Junior ACRY traveled to St. John The Compassionate Mission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to share in the work of the Mission.

While at the Mission, the youth, led by National Jr. ACRY Spiritual Advisor, Very Rev. Miles Zdinak, offered their assistance with meal preparation and other projects of benefit to the mission.

They also had the opportunity to meet with youth from St. Silouan the Athonite Mission Parish and take in a sight seeing tour of downtown Toronto.

Prior to their departure on July 7th, the mission was presented with a check representing the proceeds of the JR ACRY Lenten Mission Project.

Posted photos, courtesy of Fr. Miles Zdinak show scenes from the visit.
