Saint Demetrios JOY Advent Retreat The Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple was held on November 21, 2015. It was a huge success with over 60 youth in attendance who learned about the Mother of God, prayer, and giving thanks. They made their own koboskinia, or prayer ropes, took part in several sessions with the clergy, played basketball and soccer, made toiletry kits for the homeless and wrote letters of thanks for active soldiers to be sent during this Christmas Season. It ended with a Compline Service which all youth participated in chanting the various hymns and reading the psalms. It was a wonderfully fruitful day!"
