The Daughters of Saint Mary hosted two spiritually enriching Lenten retreats during the year of 2015: The first one was in March before Pascha (Easter) with Fr. Damaskinos Issa of Saint George in Bridgeville, PA, a former classmate of our Parish Ministries Coordinator.

The second retreat was in November 21st – the Feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple with Father Michael Butler of Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Church in Livonia. We celebrated Liturgy, enjoyed a beautiful Lenten Lunch, and Fr. Michael delivered 2 educational sessions about the Feast Day. This retreat was open to everyone and it was given in English.
