[STOTS Communications, South Canaan, PA] Drs. David and Mary Ford led a Lenten Retreat on Saturday afternoon, April 1, at St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church (OCA) in Rochester, New York. Dr. David spoke on "The Home as a Little Church: The Wisdom of St. John Chrysostom"; and Dr. Mary spoke on "Growing Spiritually in a Family." They also made available for purchase the various books they have written and/or edited.
"The very warm reception we received from Fr. Ken Stavresky and the whole parish was deeply heartwarming," reported the Fords, who also stayed over to attend the Divine Liturgy the next day. Friday evening they spent with Cindy Heise, who used to be part of the St. Tikhon's Monastery parish for many years, and her husband Jeremy and children; and Saturday night they spent with our Board of Trustees member, Mitch VanDuyn, and his wife Jan.
