Chicago’s Holy Trinity Cathedral hosts area college students at lenten retreat
CHICAGO, IL [MW Diocese Communications] — Some three dozen Orthodox Christian college students from Chicago, Wisconsin and Indiana were welcomed at Chicago’s historic Holy Trinity Cathedral for an Orthodox Christian Fellowship lenten retreat led by cathedral Dean, Priest Alexander Koranda, on Saturday, April 6, 2019.
“The retreat focused on bringing college students together for a day of prayer, fellowship and study,” said Father Alexander. “After the celebration of the Divine Liturgy, the students got acquainted with one another through icebreakers and a ‘lenten cake decorating contest.’”
Father Alexander also led an enlightening discussion on prayer, based of the teachings of Saint Theophan the Recluse, and discussed a variety of other topics, including Church and Society.
