Today the participants had their first day of classes with Fr. Alkiviadis Calivas and Fr. Paul Tarazi! The participants were very interested in the engaging lectures and had much to reflect on after during the staff led discussion groups.
After their sessions, the participants went to Faneuil Hall in downtown Boston where they had lunch, shopped, and got to see some of the oldest, most historic sites in the country! After, we visited Holy Trinity, the OCA cathedral in Boston for dinner and vespers and the priest Fr. Robert Arida spoke to the participants. This evening, Fr. Maximos of Simonopetra gave an inspiring talk to the CrossRoaders on the importance of “living in the world but not of the world”.
It is so wonderful to witness the participants taking ownership of their faith, growing as a group in Christ, and having a ton of fun in the process!
