Nativity Retreat with Bp. ANTHONY

On Saturday, December 2, the Bishop of the Midwest will address us on the topic of: "Operation Kingdom Come: Experiencing our Faith in the Modern World". Bp. ANTHONY is a challenging, interesting and amusing speaker, whose thoughtful and prayerful insights and remarks will provoke you to see contemporary Orthodox Christian discipleship in a new and fresh way. Guaranteed!
