On Saturday, September 21st the undergraduate seminarians took a trip to the Metropolis of Boston Camp for a weekend retreat with Fr. Iakovos of Simonopetra, Mt. Athos. The students arrived Saturday afternoon and returned Sunday afternoon. The theme of the weekend, which also represents the overarching theme for the 2013-14 Academic Year, is based on St. Paul’s exhortation to the church in Rome to "let your love be genuine" (Romans 12:9-18). There were several sessions with Fr. Iakovos where the students were able to listen to and learn from his wisdom as well as ask questions. The weekend also included quiet time, a vigil, a walk through the woods, great food, and great company.
