Holy Trinity Educational Ministries presents: A Two-day Retreat Series
3131 NE Glisan Street, Portland, Oregon 97232
Friday, October 16, 7 pm ~ Vibrant Parishes: Revitalizing Church Ministry with Sandra Anderson of St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church in Minneapolis Minnesota. Ways that we can revitalize our parish ministries complete with resources and tools.
Saturday, October 17, 9 am – light breakfast and talk ~ Seeking the Face of Christ – The Way of an Iconographer with Deb Korluka, author and Iconographer In her many writings about Iconography, Deb defines the purpose and technique involved in this ancient genre. She says an icon is a pilgrimage of prayer, inviting us as “a guest,a traveler, trying to find the kingdom of heaven and enter into it”. We will explore the traditional process of making an icon within the Eastern Orthodox tradition. Deb will also be willing to sign copies of her book that will be on sale as well.
We seek to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ by maintaining the faith delivered to the apostles and handed down throughout the ages, worshipping together as a community of love, fellowship, and shared spiritual growth, and reaching out through ministry to serve the needs of those around us.
