Show Notes

Welcome to a special episode of the All Around Growth podcast.  Today, I'm excited to take you on a journey through an unforgettable experience that occurred at the Ancient Faith Singles Retreat held at the Antiochian Village over the weekend.  Join me as I open up about how this event truly transformed my life. I'll be sharing my own personal reflections, hoping to give you a taste of the incredible moments we shared during the retreat.   Whether you're tuning in to reminisce about your own retreat memories or you missed out on this unique experience, this episode is your chance to dive into the beauty of that weekend from my perspective.  Thank you for being part of this journey with me.  I'm grateful to have experienced it with you. 

The Ancient Faith Singles Retreat 30+ is a gathering of Orthodox Christians who are at least 30 years of age, unmarried (single, divorced, widowed), and living in the world. The weekend will include daily matins and vespers, and Sunday Divine Liturgy. The group will participate in interactive, leader-led discussion sessions, opportunities for community service, games, and social activities, and free time for relaxation and fellowship. 

The Antiochian Village is a Christian conference and retreat center located on 300 acres in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, just six miles north of the historic town of Ligonier. Owned and operated by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, Antiochian Village was established in 1978 through the vision and leadership of the Archbishop, Metropolitan Philip, who dreamed of a place where the faithful of all ages could meet, worship, and become closer to God, away from the distractions of daily life.
