39th Annual DOWAMA Clergy Brotherhood Retreat


His Grace Bishop Basil writes:

We thank God for everyone's safe return to their homes and families following the close of our 39th Annual DOWAMA Clergy Brotherhood Retreat, led by Dr. Krastu Banev of the University of Durham in the UK, which was held at the Spiritual Life Center in Wichita, Kansas this past Tuesday through Thursday.

His Grace also shares the following photo, courtesy of Dr. Banev. The Russian cosmonaut Yuri (George) carried a photo of Elder Sophrony of Essex  and read from his works as his spacecraft orbited the earth in 2009 (you can see the reflection of the earth in this photo):
