Young Adult Retreat Held At Camp Nazareth

Monday, March 20, 2017

MERCER, PA -- [Camp Nazareth] From Friday, March 17 – Sunday, March 19 nearly 30 young adults ages 18-35, from 6 different Orthodox jurisdictions, gathered at Camp Nazareth for a Retreat. The Retreat was co-sponsored by the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Pittsburgh and the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese. The theme of the event was “Navigating Life Using Your Spiritual Compass”. Keynote addresses were delivered by Fr. Ed Pehanich and Mr. Nick Lionas. The keynote addresses also included time for break-out groups (smaller discussion groups) and activities that reinforced the topics main ideas. In addition to learning more about their Faith, the young adults celebrated services together, enjoyed some late night fire-side fellowship each night, spent some time hiking the Camp’s trails, had some fun doing ice-breakers as well as playing some games, and were able to relax and decompress from their daily routines. It was a first-time event for both the Metropolis and Diocese, but will become a semi-Annual event with Retreats being held in the Fall and Spring of each year for our Church’s young adults. Next Retreat is scheduled for October 20-22, 2017!! Read more...

March 16, 2017

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 138: Being in Communion - Part lll (3/19/17)

Sunday, March 19, 2017

“All things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 4: 15 RSV)

In this final part of “Being in Communion” I would like to concentrate on communion as it relates to the Divine Liturgy. As persons in communion, we come to the Divine Liturgy with gratitude for what God has given us. All that we have is a gift from God, ALL, not just some! We sometimes fall into the misconception that WE are responsible for what we have and what we have become. As persons in communion, we know that God has given us everything and we come to praise Him in gratitude for His gifts.

During the Divine Liturgy, we bring our gifts to be offered to Christ. Originally the first fruits of the harvest were brought, oil, wine, wheat, bread, fruits. Read more...
