This year’s Omatha boys mid-year retreat took place from 19th to 21st of July. Thirty-six boys and eleven teachers attended across three different
camp sites.

The highlight was the Sunday Divine Liturgy service at the Pantanassa Monastery, at which all attendees were provided with the blessing of venerating some personal items of St Paisios during the Matins service.

Each Omatha had their own programs with Bible studies, talks, time for friendship, bushwalks, games, Christian songs and hymns. There were wonderful
spiritual moments that arose which will remain with the boys for ever.
