With the Blessing of the Council of Bishops the consecration of the newly constructed chapel at All Saints Camp in Emlenton, Pennsylvania has been selected for June 21 and 22, 2008 on the weekend of the Feast of All Saints.
This event will not only highlight the culmination of the dream of having a chapel at the camp, but also celebrate the 30th anniversary of the acquisition of this beautiful corner of God’s creation. During the weekend, the clergy and faithful of the Church will remember the benefactors and supporters of the camp, both the departed and the living. We will celebrate the success of the Youth Ministry Program and the well loved encampments at All Saints, the Diocesan Church Camp, Teenage Conference and the Mommy and Me/Daddy and Me Camp.
For further information about the celebration, please contact Pani Matka Iryna or Deacon Ihor Mahlay at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephon 440-582-1051
