Annunciation Cathedral GOYA holds Ski Retreat

March 13, 2006 

Contoocook, NH - Members of the Annunciation Cathedral GOYA of Boston recently held their annual ski retreat at the St. Methodios Faith and Heritage Center. Skiing was held at Pat’s Peak ski area only minutes from the camp. The Goyans decided to ski Saturday night and enjoy the “pay one price” program at Pat’s Peak. This program allows them the opportunity to ski, snowboard, or snowtube or any combination thereof. After returning to the camp, they enjoyed a home cooked meal. They concluded their stay with a late night campfire and devotional. A devotional is a common practice among campers where the young people have a chance to discuss their faith and share with their peers, staff members, and seminarians. The night concluded with the hymn“Lord of the powers…”. The staff and young people stayed the night, but left early on Sunday morning to attend the Divine Liturgy and to celebrate the Sunday of Orthodoxy in their home parish.
