On October 24th the Holy Cross Parish from Justice, IL held a community Retreat at the St. Iakovos Retreat Center. over 45 participants enjoyed faith and fellowship with each other. The day began with a tour of the entire property. After the tour a service was celebrated in the chapel followed by a wonderful lunch prepared by a few of the participants. We rounded the day out with a wagon ride through the proskinitaria trails and a visit to the animals where we ran into the St. Demetrios GOYA from Elmhurst, IL and took a group photo all together! We look forward to hopefully having the Holy Cross Parish retreating with us again soon!
