Women's Ministry Annual Report January 2009
Linda Kopulos and Michaelyn Sloan
2008 - Our 7th Annual Women's Lenten Retreat was held in March with Mother Gabriel, Abbess of the Dormition of the Mother of God Monastic Community as speaker. She spoke on "The Joy of Being A Christian" and the "Acquisition of Virtues" during the afternoon retreat held in our church's basement. Over 60 women from Orthodox parishes throughout the Chicago area, as well as from other denominations were in attendance. The Orthodox Christian radio program, Come Receive the Light, was present and taped the retreat.
2009 - A Lenten Retreat in planning stage. We will try a new format this year with a local speaker and workshops.
