On April 9, 2016 JOY Youth, grade 3-6, participated in the Annual Lenten Retreat at the Petrides Center. The theme of the retreat was the Ladder of Divine Ascent: Virtues and Vices in Our Life. All youth learned about various virtues that bring us close to God and vices that move us away from God through active games, videos, crafts and discussions. The virtues of Prayer and Fasting were emphasized by Father Anastasios, Father Vassilios, and Father Dionysios. We thank all that attended this fruitful event!
Blessed Pascha to everyone!
