We are very pleased to announce that our Parish has the historic privilege of hosting the 2014 Parish Life Conference at what has been called, “The Jewel of the Archdiocese”, the Antiochian Village Conference and Retreat Center.

The Conference Center boasts many amenities, including 18 fully equipped meeting rooms, full service banquet hall, an Amphitheater, Antiochian Heritage Museum, all inclusive WiFi, and beautiful scenic meditation trail. There are 100 hotel-style rooms available on-site, with nearby hotels for the over-flow, so make your reservations early. In-house Executive Chef and Pastry Chefs will prepare world class cuisine during your stay. Food carts and dining areas exclusive to the Parish Life Conference will be featured so that you will have a variety of food choices.

Tours of the Retreat Center and grounds, a service at the Saint Thekla Shrine, as well as a trip to the Flight 93 Memorial site in Shanksville, PA are planned. You can register for daily activities which will include horse back riding, archery, and the challenge course. Some of the nearby attractions include the world famous Idlewild Park and Soak Zone, Champion Lakes Golf Course, Fort Ligonier, and Falling Water.

See the enclosed registration form to sign up for meetings, activities, meals, etc. You MUST book your rooms by contacting the Antiochian Village Conference and Retreat Center at (724) 238-3677 or by printing and mailing the room and meals registration form. Registration begins January 1, 2014. Registration for all other activities, meetings, meals, etc., will be separate and through Saint George, New Kensington.

This year’s Parish Life Conference promises to be like no other, as it will be showcased at the heart and center of our very own all encompassing Orthodox Facility…the Antiochian Village! We send our children there every summer and tell them it is the greatest place on earth. Now, we as “families” can come together at “AV” and share in Faith, Family, and Each Other.

Be a part of history!
