HCHC Seminarians Attend Lenten Retreat
All HCHC seminarians, in both the College and the School of Theology, gathered for an overnight Lenten retreat March 29-30 at the St. Methodios Faith and Learning Center in Contoocook, New Hampshire. The students had the blessing of hearing guest speakers who included His Grace Bishop Ilia of Philomelion, HCHC President Rev. Fr. Christopher Metropulos, Dean of Students Rev. Fr. Antonios Papathanasiou, Dr. Bruce Beck, and Dr. Timothy Patitsas. “It was an uplifting and illuminating experience for everyone,” said Fr. Christopher, “and a special joy for me to spend that extended time in worship and fellowship with our seminarians.”
The group returned to campus at the conclusion of the retreat on Saturday and reconvened the following morning, the Sunday of the Veneration of the Holy Cross, for the Divine Liturgy in Holy Cross Chapel.
