Children’s Mini-Retreat at Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Cathedral

Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Cathedral is thrilled to announce our Children’s Mini-Retreat, a delightful gathering tailored specifically for young souls eager to explore their faith and creativity. Scheduled for Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 1 pm to 5 pm, this mini-retreat promises an afternoon filled with spiritual enrichment, fun activities, and cherished memories.

Designed for children ages 5 to 13 (Kindergarten through 8th grade), our mini-retreat offers a diverse array of engaging experiences catered to various interests and developmental stages. Here’s a glimpse of what awaits your little ones:

  1. Religion Class: Led by our knowledgeable instructors, children will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of Orthodox Christian teachings through interactive lessons and discussions tailored to their age group.
  2. Arts and Crafts: Unleash your child’s creativity with hands-on arts and crafts activities, where they can express themselves artistically while also learning about the rich symbolism present in Orthodox Christian art.
  3. Music Class: Nurture your child’s love for music with a dedicated class where they can explore the melodies and hymns of our faith, fostering a deeper appreciation for the musical traditions of Orthodoxy.
  4. Snack Time: Recharge with a delicious snack break, providing a moment for children to refuel and socialize with their peers in a welcoming and inclusive environment.
  5. Egg Hunt: Join in the excitement of a traditional egg hunt, a cherished Vrbica tradition that symbolizes new life and rebirth, reinforcing the spiritual significance of the season in a playful and enjoyable manner.
  6. Vespers with Procession: The mini-retreat culminates in a beautiful Vespers service with a procession, allowing children to actively participate in the rich liturgical traditions of our faith and experience the profound sense of community and reverence.
