Lent is coming!
In preparation for the coming Great Fast, the Eastern Eparchy of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada invites all Youth, ages 7–25, together with their parents to attend a Retreat — on Saturday, February 27th, 2016, from 1:15pm — at St. Demetrius’ Ukrainian Orthodox Sobor — 3338 Lakeshore Boulevard West, Toronto, ON.
The theme of this Retreat is: “Love”.
“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
—1 Cor 13:13
• 1:15 Light Lunch
• 1:30 Sessions Begin:
1) In the Choir Loft — with the wonderfully positive energy of choir conductor, Zhana Zinchenko
2) In the Kitchen — whipping up sweet and savoury things to satisfy any appetite, with Dobr. Tania
3) Ask Dr. Peter — an opportunity to engage in open dialogue about what matters to you, with Dr. Peter Kondra
4) “Love” — an engaging, clergy-led discussion
“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”
—1 Cor 13:4-8
• 5:00 Vespers
• 6:00 Supper
ADMISSION to the Retreat is FREE.
Following Supper, those interested are invited to a social event: a friendly game of laser tag (combining “the classic game of hide-and-seek and tag with a high tech twist”) at Laser Quest.
ADMISSION to Laser Quest for (youth) Retreat participants: $10.
