Summer Camps and Monasteries

Read the important Encyclical On Camp Ministries by his Eminence Metropolitan Iakovos of Chicago here.

Often here in America, especially in areas where Orthodox monasteries exist such as the Chicago area, a division starts to form between the ministries of the local parish and the monasteries. The encyclical is an invitation towards cooperation between the two so that neither undermines the other.
