All men, single, married, and of all ages are welcome to join us for this Pan-Orthodox Men's Retreat weekend led by Paul Karos and hosted by Antiochian Village. Group discount available for groups of 10 or more. Bring your parish men’s group!
Learning and Fellowship
Come learn and discuss the every day challenges of building and leading our Orthodox homes as men. We will examine a framework that assists in becoming aware of the constant balancing act men face between vocation, growing in Christ’s likeness, and becoming the husbands and fathers we are called to be.
