The end of our time together has finally come. The participants have returned home with all the wonderful memories we’ve made here together at CrossRoad Chicago!

Closing our final day of Session 3, we participated in one last Orthros led by Fr. Kosmas Kallis. He left us with encouraging words to hold onto our experience and to go back home and be a light in our parishes and communities. The past 10 days were transformative for all the CrossRoaders, clergy, and staff! We pray the participants will hold all that they learned with them throughout the year and continue to build on the connection to our faith they felt this week at CrossRoad.

A big THANK YOU to North Park University, donors, clergy and of course our incredible staff for working tirelessly to make not only the inaugural Chicago session a huge success, but the whole summer as well. Thank you for your love and dedication to the program and for helping bring our participants closer to the church and strengthening their relationship with Christ. May God bless and protect you always, and may you finally get some much-deserved sleep!

We are so grateful for another beautiful and fulfilling summer together. Looking forward to another incredible experience during CrossRoad 2019!
