2009 Summer Youth Pilgrimage
July 27, 2009
JOHNSTOWN, PA All diocesan youth and their friends ages 8-22 are invited to take part in the annual Summer Youth Pilgrimage at Camp Nazareth from Friday August 21 to Sunday August 23, 2009. This year the Icon of the Smolensk Mother of God from Rahway, New Jersey will arrive at the Pilgrimage.
The Icon's story of how it arrived in New Jersey and it's presence in the Church is sure to encourage discussion and reflection when we compare its journey to our own struggles and triumphs. Come and see!
On Saturday we will travel to the Saint Luke the Evangelist and Physician Chapel in the Polk Center where we will pray the Moleben to Saint Nectarios for the Center's residents.
On Sunday we will join His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas for the Diocesan Summer Pilgrimage
