Women's Ministry Annual Report January 2010
Linda Kopulos and Michaelyn Sloan
The 8th Annual Lenten Women’s Retreat was held on Sunday March 23, 2009. We decided to change the format this year and brought in a speaker from outside of the Orthodox Church. The retreat was geared for our parishioners only with dual intentions: a spiritual retreat and time for fellowship. Chris Yadron, Director of Clinical Training at Chicago Christian Counseling Center in Orland Park presented a two-hour, interactive program titled, “When God is Silent.” Lunch preceded the program. 28 ladies attended.
For 2010 the 9th Annual Women’s Retreat is planned for Saturday January 23, 2010. Frederica Matthews Greene will speak on living life as an Orthodox woman with vespers following.
