Groundbreaking held for chapel at All Saints Camp in Pennsylvania
EMLENTON, Pa. - The All Saints Camp Committee of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the U.S.A. and many friends and supporters of the camp on Saturday, March 19, participated in the groundbreaking ceremony for the chapel at All Saints Camp.
Metropolitan Constantine of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the U.S.A. celebrated the ceremony along with Fathers Charles Baxter, John Nakonachny, George Hnatko, Stephen Repa, Stephan Zencuch and Mark Philips, Deacons Anthony Perkins and Dennis Lapushinsky, and over 70 friends and supporters of the camp.
The All Saints Camp also hosted a Ukrainian Orthodox League Lenten Retreat over the weekend of March 18-20.
Although the weekend was overcast and the grounds muddy, the sun broke through the clouds as the metropolitan led all in prayer at the site where the chapel will be built.
The All Saints Camp was purchased 27 years ago for the purpose of providing a place where Orthodox Christians could come to enjoy fellowship with one another amidst the beauty of God's creation. From the very beginning, the All Saints Camp Committee's goal was to build a chapel on the grounds of the camp.
The All Saints Camp Committee expressed thanks to the gracious benefactors, who wish to remain anonymous at this time, whose generosity made it possible for the Church to finally realize this goal.
