Philip Rogers of Archangel Gabriel Orthodox Church in Lafayette, LA, reports that the Diocese of Miami and the Southeast had the diocese's annual Delegates Meeting in Atlanta, GA on January 24-26, 2014. During the weekend, the members of Teen SOYO, the Fellowship of St. John, the Antiochian Women, and the clergy all had fruitful meetings.

"This year's gathering was also special because we celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Camp St. Thekla, the Diocese camp," noted Fr. Philip. To celebrate this milestone, St. Elias Antiochian Orthodox Church in Atlanta hosted a full day of camp with Matins, special Christian Education lessons, an afternoon with Color Wars, Great Vespers and an evening program with presentations from former campers and staff about the importance of Camp St. Thekla in their lives. Over 65 campers from around the Diocese and a number of parents and other camp supporters all participated in the event.
