“Come, let us go up the mountain of the Lord, that he may teach us his ways and we may walk in his paths.” Micah 4.2 It is not too early to think about our strategic planning for Fall, 2012 when we prepare our homes for the winter months, shop for the holidays, and attend to secular year end business. September 1 is the beginning of our Liturgical Year and a good time to get our houses in good spiritual order. Why not Ascend the Mountain of the Lord?
The St. Thekla Pilgrimage is an annual pilgrimage and now the patronal feast of the Convent of St Thekla and is held at the Antiochian Village Camp & Conference Center on the weekend closest to the feast of St. Thekla (September 24). Those attending the pilgrimage stay at the Conference Center in our hotel-style rooms. All meals and costs for the weekend are included in the registration. The weekend includes prayer, guest speakers, activities for children, and most simply a time to get away from daily life and spiritually renew oneself.
The 2012 Pilgrimage is scheduled for September 21-23, 2012. Mark your calendar to join Mother Alexandra and all of us at the Village for the 2012 Pilgrimage. For more information click here.
