2013 St Herman's Conference

The annual Mid-America diocesan St Herman's Youth Conference took place on 26-29, 2013 in Rockford, IL.  Thirty five young people from all over our diocese took part in the 3-day pilgrimage which offeried lectures, large and small group discussions, service to the community (spending an afternoon at the Rockford Rescue Mission), church singing and reading seminars, and most importantly – Divine Services. The young people sang and did all the reading at the Vigil and Divine Liturgy which was led by His Grace Bishop Peter at the small parish church on the grounds of the diocesan ORPR summer camp  in Lost Lake/Vladimirovo, IL. Following a very tasty and filling Lenten meal, His Grace led a question and answer period with the young people. The pilgrims then departed through freezing rain and snow all returning home safely.
