MGOCSM Chicago Winter One-Day Retreat
The annual Chicago Winter One-Day Retreat took place on Saturday, January 11th, at the St. Gregorios Orthodox Church, Elmhurst, during which the following topics were discussed: sanctification of time and space, abiding in Christ through suffering, the importance of having Christ in your life, and life after death. The speakers for this year’s retreat were: Rev. Fr. Aju Mathews, Rev. Fr. Teji Abraham, Rev. Dn. Arun Varghese, and Lijin Raju. During the retreat, a service activity was conducted in which the youth wrote letters to the Iraqi Christians who are facing persecution from ISIS. Let us continue to keep the MGOCSM ministry and spiritual well-being of all those in the Chicago Area in prayer.
