On Sunday, March 19th, following the Divine Liturgy on the Sunday of the Life-Giving Cross, members of the Diocesan Youth Camp ORPR hosted a fundraising lunch and Youth Outreach event at Holy Virgin Protection Cathedral in Des Plaines. During the meal, campers and camp leaders gave a presentation describing ORPR's program and inviting new participants and volunteers.
The campers began their presentation by singing the Preobrazhenskiy March, ORPR's hymn, which was originally the hymn of the Russian Imperial Guard. A picture slideshow of camp life was set in the background to give the audience a glimpse of the numerous activities held during the camp session. All Orthodox youth between the ages of eight and sixteen are invited to attend!
The Diocesan Youth Camp also has many exciting volunteer opportunities. For more information, or if you would like to donate to either the construction or scholarship funds, please look at the website:
