[STOTS Communications, South Canaan, PA] In addition to hosting the Mission Choir, (you can view the mission choir visit story and photos here) St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral hosted a Lenten Retreat on Saturday morning and afternoon, featuring a presentation and discussion session with Seraphim Danckaert, Director of Mission Advancement at St. Tikhon’s, on the topic: “Why Young People Are Leaving the Church and What to Do About It.”

Through the course of the weekend parishioners commented on all they received from the retreat. Archpriest Michael Senyo, Cathedral Dean, shared his gratitude for St. Tikhon’s contribution to the fullness of this special Sunday of the Most Precious Cross.  Seraphim later joined in an evening of fellowship with parish faithful and Mission Choir members at the home of Protodeacon Michael and Mat. Mary Wusylko.
