The Fellowship’s Retreat in the Apostles’ Fast will be held in the Romanian Orthodox convent, the Dormition of the Mother of God Orthodox Monastery, Rives Junction, MI, July 1 - 3, 2005. 

This retreat should be a good time for us to pray and ask the Lord to direct our steps in serving Him, an apostolic service, as the Church we serve in is Apostolic as well.  Members of SMOF all over the world are welcome, but this will be an exceptional chance for people in the Midwest of USA, and neighboring states in Canada. 

The space is limited, so we ask members to reserve soon by sending their registration using the attached Response Card.  A donation of $100 is suggested for each person. 

Check the Monastery’s website (http://www.dormitionmonastery.com/) for more information and directions. 

Further details will be posted here.  For more information, call Ramzy Labib at 410-730-3860, or by e-mail: rslabib1@juno.com.
