Youth Pilgrimage 2008 - Fri Aug 15, 2008
The Third Annual Diocesan Youth Pilgrimage began on Friday afternoon August 15, 2008 at Camp Nazareth. Upon their arrival and registration the pilgrims participated in the Daily Vespers service and enjoyed a delicious supper prepared by the Camp Nazareth Staff. Following supper the pilgrims hiked through the woods here they experienced the peacefulness and enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of the waterfalls. The day ended with a spiritual talk on the porch of Sts. Cyril and Methodios Church and the singing of Complines.
These young ladies patiently waited for supper to begin.

Father Andrew Fetchina, the director of the Diocesan Apostolate For Youth, speaks to the youth about the importance of seeking the Kingdom of Heaven through an active prayer life and participation in the liturgical and spiritual life of the Church.
The youth from St. Michael's Church in Binghamton were the first to arrive.
"Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Have Mercy on Me a Sinner!" - The pilgrims began their journey to the waterfalls quietly praying the Jesus Prayer."
