We are the Temple of God”
“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16
We are overjoyed to announce the completion of our first children’s spiritual retreat under the supervision of Father Andraws, along with the presence of the church servants and 35 children between the ages of 5-10. On Saturday, November 30th, the theme developed was that of physical cleanliness and care (such as brushing one’s teeth, bathing, etc.). On Sunday, December 1st, we spoke of the importance of inner cleanliness, care, and purity, highlighting the wonder of the Spirit of God who resides in us. During the retreat, we did many activities, spiritual teachings, and practices reflecting both themes. We also enjoyed puppet shows, crafts, swimming, playing in groups, prayer of liturgy, etc. Through the grace of God, the very first children’s retreat was a complete blessing, joy, and success for all.
