2015 Student Retreat

2015 Student Retreat

On 4 and 5 November 2015, a number of our students took part in a retreat at Stanwell Tops, NSW. The retreat provided them ample opportunity to bond in a more relaxed setting, enjoying various outdoor activities despite the strange weather.

On the first day of the retreat, the students were honoured by the presence of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos of Australia (College Dean).

For spiritual reflection, the students invited Protopresbyter Dr Doru Costache (Senior Lecturer in Patristic Studies) and Deacon Dimitri Papaikonomou (BTh, '07) to present on liturgical themes.

Father Doru examined the relation between "The Divine Liturgy and the ‘Philosophical Life'." Deacon Dimitri discussed the topic "Understanding Marriage through Orthodox Liturgics".
