We’ll be gathering again in Pecos this fall for our annual parish retreat, October 6, 7 and 8. More details will be forthcoming but we look forward to community worship, teaching and restful celebration.
More information about the monastery is available at the monastery website.
For more information about the retreat including accomodations, contact Mari Basilia.
As we are all settling into our Autumn schedules Fr. John is pleased to begin again his weekly study sessions.
Starting October 1, the Inquirer’s Class will be meeting on Saturdays at 4. From the curious to the seasoned, all are invited to learn more about the Orthodox faith and tradition. Please invite friends and acquaintances that you think might be interested. Note that the first three Saturday sessions will be taught as a unit titled An Introduction to the Ancient Orthodox Church: History, Theology, and Spiritual Practice.
Then, on Wednesday, October 5th at 11am, Fr. John will begin afresh his Wednesday morning book study. This Autumn we will be reading St. Athanasius, On The Incarnation (with a forward by C.S. Lewis).
For more information, contact Fr. John.

About the Retreat
OYPR is an opportunity for young adults from across the Rocky Mountain region and beyond to come together for a weekend of prayer, fellowship, learning, and fun. In 2015, our first-ever, pan-Orthodox young professionals retreat was held in Santa Fe in October. 53 young adults attended. This year, we’ve chosen a retreat center 30 minutes south of Santa Fe to host our retreat. An optional pilgrimage to the Monastery of the Archangel Michael in Cañones, NM, will take place following the retreat.
