Aliquippa Church Camp Visits Hermitage Parish

Hermitage, PA - The annual church camp held at St. Elijah Serbian Orthodox Church in Aliquippa, Pennysylvania began their week-long camp on Monday, June 10, 2013. As this year's theme is Icons: Windows to Heaven the parish priest, V. Rev. Stavrophor Stevan Stepanov contacted V. Rev. Milovan Katanic at St. George Serbian Church in Hermitage, Pennsylvania to discuss a possible visit to the parish. The St. George parish began a fresco project a few years ago and Prota Stevan wanted to incorporate the visit into their church camp curriculum.

The campers, led by Prota Stevan, arrived Monday morning in Hermitage where they were welcomed by Fr. Milovan who gave a short presentation about icons and the fresco making process to campers in the church. Afterward, a lunch was prepared for the guests.
