Parent/Youth Retreat with His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon June 29, 2018 - 06/18/18

His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon will be making a pastoral visit to All Saints Orthodox Church in Hartford on the last Saturday in June (June 30th), for the Feast of the Synaxis of the Holy Apostles. 

His Beatitude, along with His Eminence, Archbishop Nikon, will be celebrating the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy - with the bulk of the servers/singers made up of diocesan youth (though - all are welcome to serve/sing) - in celebration of the feast with us here at All Saints at 9:30am that Saturday. 

Following the Divine Liturgy, Met. Tikhon will lead a retreat for youth and their parents focused on one of our "American Saints": Saint Tikhon the Confessor, ​Enlightener and Archbishop of the Orthodox ​Archdiocese in America - and, eventually, last Patriarch of Moscow before the Revolution. 

All are welcome and encouraged to participate in celebration of the Divine Liturgy.
