To all parishioners of Holy Martyr Peter the Aleut Orthodox Church:

The theme for our Assembly this year is “Refreshment for the Journey,” using the words of Isaiah 40:31 as our main text: “Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.”

This week of being refreshed and renewed will consist of:

  • Good teaching
  • Renewed Friendships
  • Joyful worship (“The joy of the Lord is my strength”)
  • Relaxing activities
  • Opening BBQ on Tuesday evening at St. Herman’s
  • Clergy Wive’s Gathering with the Archbishop (Wednesday)
  • Wednesday evening Banquet at the beautiful Muttart Conservatory
