Children’s camp in England

In August, a children’s camp was held in England, with approximately 20 children from our various sister churches participating. The children had lessons on the Law of God, daily church services, many games and excursions.

Nun Evgenia from the Annunciation Hermitage in Australia (ROCA) and nun Pelagia from the Convent of St John of Shanghai in the Ukraine (ROCA) gave lessons to the younger children throughout the camp. The older children had daily group discussions on more challenging topics, with each topic presented by a parent.

On the final day of the camp, which coincided with the camp chapel feast day of St Olav of Norway (29.7./11.8), the Very Reverend Archimandrite Daniel (GOC) served the Divine Liturgy, with the children chanting, reading and serving. Father Daniel’s also gave thought-provoking talks to both children and parents, which were very popular.
