My visit to St George, Cicero — April 11-13th — for the North American Council (NAC) Fellowship of St John the Divine Lenten Retreat was a true blessing! Pictured here, however, is the only patch of blue seen during the weekend. Ah … Chicago in April.
Actually, Fr Fouad Saba, the Assistant Priest at St George Cicero, was a delight! I took this pic hoping to grab his intensity. I did not know, however, that it would radiate out from his image and warble the background. Amazing.
I had the honour of being the keynote speaker for the Retreat entitled “Taking Steps Toward the Kingdom … CHANGE SOMETHING!” The young adults were then divided into small groups (pictured above and below).
(Fr Fouad is pictured here
casting out demons leading a small group.)
Honest to goodness, I have no idea what happened here to Fr Nicholas Dahdal’s hand. It was there when I snapped the pic, but my batteries were low. Actually, Fr Nicholas was a warm and generous host, hands down.
That’s me and John & Tonya Maddex (aka Ancient Faith Radio) and their wonder-grand, Elijah.
