Dear OCW Members & Friends,
Greetings in Christ! We have until 7/7 to Pre-Register for our Annnual OCW Summer RETREAT at Holy Dormition Orthodox Monastery in Rives Junction! We hope & pray you are able to join us for this refreshing day of spiritual renewal, that is nearly impossible to find in our busy, daily lives. We provide this opportunity for you once every year, and hope that you & your family & friends make it a priority to take one day out of your busy schedules to uplift your spirits and feed your souls! Do it for yourselves, and those you love. You will be glad you did!
Don’t forget, pre-registration is due by July 7. Call Loretta asap (click on Flyer and see phone # at the bottom)
Below is a detailed schedule of the day’s activities AND the registration flyer can be clicked on below also. We are very pleased to have Archpriest Fr. Dusan Koprivica, parish priest of St. Demetrius Orthodox Church in Jackson, MI, speaking to us on “THE SPIRITUAL ADVISOR/FATHER CONFESSOR: What role does he play in my life?” This topic pertains to ALL of us, and this retreat is open to anyone who wishes to attend. (This includes husbands, sons, fathers, friends, etc.) Come solo, bring a friend, or carpool as a group! We and the Monastery Sisterhood welcome you with open arms!
As loyal and faithful OCW Members, we count on you to PLEASE share this information with your family and friends, even if you are unable to attend yourself. Forward this e-mail, or call your family & friends to take advantage of this once-a-year event. We are truly blessed to have an Orthodox Monastery within a short driving distance of the Detroit area. Come and see! Experience the peace & serenity for yourself!
Your Orthodox sisters in Christ,
ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN WOMEN OF MICHIGAN
