Starting in the evening of Friday 4th of August, 40 young men of the Greek Orthodox Christian Society attended their weekend retreat to Mangrove Mountain. The lessons centred around Panagia and the Transfiguration, in preparation for those upcoming feasts. For the first time at a mid-year retreat, the young men on attended a five-hour night vigil at Pantanassa Monastery to celebrate the Transfiguration of Christ. At the end of the camp, it was announced that around 10 members will be moving to the second group.
