This year our retreat was truly a Pan-Orthodox event with members from the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and The Orthodox Church in America. In addition, the UOL worked with ACRY and Fr. William George and Fr. William Bennett, clergy from the American Carpatho-Russian Diocese, led a program for children.
This year the retreat was entitled “Peace be with you all” and it focused on the Divine Liturgy. The day started with morning prayers and breakfast. The morning included direct instruction on the meaning of each element of the Divine Liturgy. We were blessed to have Fr. Anthony Perkins and Fr. Michael Danczak provide instruction about the Divine Liturgy.
