Dear Reverend Fathers, Chaperones, Parents, and GOYAns:

Given the rising public health concerns in Michigan regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and in consultation with His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas and one of our acting Chancellors, we have regretfully decided to cancel this weekend's Michigan Area Lenten Retreat at St. George Church in Southgate, MI.

This proactive decision was made to ensure the health and safety of our youth and their families, the volunteers and advisors, and the parish communities to which they belong.

We extend our deepest gratitude to St. George Church in Southgate for their willingness to host this event and all of the work they had already put into preparing for this weekend's event.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause any of you and we truly appreciate your understanding. May God continue to bless and protect everyone.

In Christ,
Eva Konstantakos - Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries
