Event description

Description

Led by Fr. Evan Armatas, Fr. Andrew Damick, Fr. Stephen Freeman, and Fr. Barnabas Powell, this first-ever conference will invite Orthodox men to reflect on the battle to tame the passions and run the race that is set before us. The conference will include daily worship, sessions, panel discussions, a live-audience radio event, fellowship, and good food.

Who's Invited: This conference is a pan-Orthodox event for men in every stage of life, from college-age on up. If you aren't Orthodox, you are still very welcome to attend. This is an openly Orthodox event, but if you're comfortable with us, we're comfortable with you.

Roommates: There are three kinds of tickets - one person in one room, two people in one room, and three people in one room. Please note that Ancient Faith is NOT able to find you a roommate. (Please email Melinda Johnson at mjohnson@ancientfaith.com if you'd like to be added to a private Facebook group for people looking for roommates or carpools.) You are responsible for finding your roommate and arranging to purchase your ticket together. The price listed is the total price for the room. It should be divided in half for two roommates and in thirds for three roommates.

Food: Chef Tim at Antiochian Village provides excellent meals, and we're looking forward to sharing them with you. If you require special dietary accommodation for health reasons, please contact Melinda Johnson at mjohnson@ancientfaith.com to fill out a form.

Driving: There is plenty of free parking at Antiochian Village, so if you're within reach, this is a great way to come.

Airports: If you are flying in, your best bet is likely Pittsburgh International Airport. There is a closer, smaller airport in Latrobe, but the only carrier is Spirit. There are also Amtrak and Greyhound stations in Latrobe, which is 20 minutes from AV.

Airport Transportation: Antiochian Village is 90 minutes from Pittsburgh and 20 minutes from Latrobe. Group airport transportation has been arranged from Pittsburgh International Airport to Antiochian Village on Thursday, and returning to the airport on Sunday. The vans on Thursday will leave the airport at 2 PM and 5 PM respectively. The returning vans will leave Antiochian Village at 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM respectively. Please consider the shuttle times when you book your flights. Airport transportation is a separate cost, not included in your retreat ticket; it is $95 per person round trip if you are part of a group of 5 or more, so you must book directly with Allison Taylor at Antiochian Villlage. Her email is events@antiochianvillage.org, or you can reach her by telephone at (724) 238-3677. The round-trip cost from and to Latrobe Airport is $40 per person and can be booked for any time - it is not necessary to be part of a group. This should also be booked directly with Allison Taylor at Antiochian Village.

What to Wear: Wear comfortable clothes appropriate for summer weather. We will be celebrating Divine Liturgy together on Sunday morning, so please bring "church clothes" for that. The center is in a beautiful wooded area, so if you enjoy hiking around outside, you may wish to pack jeans and good walking shoes for the woods.

Questions: Please don't hesitate to contact Melinda Johnson at mjohnson@ancientfaith.com with any questions.

We are looking forward very much to spending time with you!
