2016 Pan-Orthodox Youth Lenten Retreat

posted Feb 25, 2016, 7:46 PM by Gabriela Vidal Fontes

Announcing this year's St. Anna sponsored Middle School and High School Lenten Retreat to be held at St. Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center in Dunlap, CA!

Nestled in the foothills of Kings Canyon National Park our teens and preteens will retreat from the chaos of our daily lives in an attempt to refocus themselves spiritually. Throughout the weekend our young people will have the opportunity to pray together, have discussions together lead by priests and youth workers, visit the Monastery of the Life Giving Spring, and much more. Though this is a drive for some of us, the weekend will be quite enjoyable and relaxing for everyone who participates!

This year the cost of the retreat is $100 without transportation. The fee is calculated by the cost of food (all meals Saturday and brunch on Sunday) and 2 nights lodging and the supplies needed to make the rest of the weekend happen. This is a very reasonable price as other facilities were quoting $200 and up for a weekend. Thank you to Michael Pappas, Director of St. Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center, for giving us such affordable prices.
