From August 5th to the 9th, New Gracanica Monastery hosted a Family Retreat. The theme of the Retreat was “Be still and know that I am God”. Aside from the New Gracanica clergy, there were about twenty five people at the retreat. All of the lectures and most of the services during the time of the retreat were conducted in English language. Participants in the retreat had a chance to “be still” at the peaceful New Gracanica Monastery grounds and to immediately experience the theme of the retreat which was so well presented in lectures by Fr. Michael Oyer and Fr. Philip Tolbert.
We hope that more and more people will join us at the family retreat with each coming year in order to share the wonderful experience that this year’s participants did.
