The St. Iakovos Retreat Center hosted its first group since completing construction March 6 - 8 2015. The weekend was filled with faith and fellowship amongst Fanari campers and staff, as well as excitement to finally be home. It has been a long road since first purchasing the property in 2006 to finally having our first campers. A road that has been filled with much effort and love from parishioners from throughout the Chicago Metropolis and much guidance from our Heirarchs. The retreat center board of directors and staff very much look forward to our a summer filled with more prayers and smiles from our campers.
