Yesterday, we had our second day of theology and scripture classes which have sparked thoughtful and insightful questions and comments from the participants!
After lunch, we had an opportunity to participate in two interactive staff-led sessions, one on the life of Mother Maria Skobtsova and one on Faith & Science.
Last evening concluded with a parish visit to Holy Resurrection Bulgarian Orthodox Church and was followed by a very special staff-led session in the Holy Cross Chapel titled, “Night with the Saints.” In this session, the participants were divided into small groups to “meet” different Saints, venerate icons and relics in the Holy Cross Chapel, and learn what sainthood means. The takeaway of the evening was that every person has the opportunity and calling to be a Saint.
