Multi-Parish Youth Retreat in San Francisco, California August 24, 2024

On August 24th, the Elpida program of the Annunciation Cathedral in San Francisco will be hosting a multi-parish youth retreat, “Panagia, Parables, and Parea,” at Annunciation from 1-5pm.

Parents must be present for the afterparty from 5-7. They will have transformed their gym into an inflatable wonderland with large slides, obstacle courses and more. Children in grades Transitional Kindergarten (age 4) through 8th grade are welcome to join for an afternoon of collaboration and fun.

Children will learn about some of the miracles of the blessed Theotokos, Greek Orthodox parables, and August saints. Delicious food, onsite security, valet parking, and some good old-fashioned parea will be provided.

In addition, Annunciation will be hosting a parent workshop for those parents who wish to stay on their campus while their littles ones participate in the Elpida program. Elpida’s main focus is community and bringing people together. Let Elpida show your children how many children share their faith and culture. They cannot wait for you to join them!
