2019 Young Women's Encounter - Monday, July 1

On Monday, we had two sessions about growing personal relationship with the Church Triumphant so that we could see what this relationship could look like and how we can grow this in our lives. We also tie-dyed the event shirts. In the afternoon Metropolitan Gregory visited us sharing his closeness with Saint Nectarios and answering our questions. After dinner and some games, we prayed an Akathist to Saint Xenia and participated in discussion groups.
