The Metropolis of Chicago Family Synaxis Ministry held the annual overnight women's retreat at the St. Iakovos Retreat Center just after the start of the New Year. Over 30 women from across the Metropolis gather for a one night - two day- retreat full of fun, faith and fellowship. Cynthis Damaskos was the featured speaker and she focused her remarks on being a Holistic Christian Woman. Highlights from the overnight include discussion, fellowship worship and a beautiful walk through the Proskinitaria forest. We look forward to hosting the annual 2018 Family Synaxis Women's Retreat!
