On Saturday, September 6th, His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon let a spiritual retreat entitled, "The Treasures of Ancient Christianity", at Christ the Savior Mission in Berlin, MD.
The event doubled as the annual Archdiocese Day as faithful clergy and laity journeyed to the shore to share in worship, fellowship, and education.
The Synodal Youth Choir performed a concert with hymns from the ancient Liturgy of the Church as well as sang the responses during the divine services.
In addition to the lecture, concert, question/answer session, and divine services, there was a barbeque and lamb roast, swimming, and activities for children. Glory to God and many thanks to all!
