Saturday, April 6th,
The Teen SOYO group from Saint George Orthodox Church in Montreal was joined by Father Gleb Melnyk and the teens from Saints Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Church in Montreal for an evening dinner, Medayeh, and “Ask Abouna” session.
The traditional lenten Middle Eastern cuisine prepared by the teens was enjoyed by all, and the singing during the Medayeh was inspiring.
After church, the icebreaker game in the Fellowship hall allowed everyone to be introduced to one another and provided an opportunity for the youth to see the historical connection between our Orthodox Christian communities.
During the “Ask Abouna” session Fr. Joseph Purpura, pastor, Fr. Justin Mitchell, Mentoring Director, and Fr. Gleb answered questions focused on marriage and family life. We give thanks to God for a blessed evening of fellowship.
