His Eminence and the Reverend Fathers with all the youth who participated in the Camp MET BC Family Reunion.
On Sunday, January 31, 2016, His Eminence Metropolitan Sotirios celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Church of St. George in Vancouver; he was assisted by Rev. Fr. Dorotheos Tryfonopoulos (Retired) and Rev. Fr. Constantinos Economos (Parish Priest). Following the Liturgy, His Eminence tonsured two young men as Sub-Deacons: Christian Skrivanos and George Zelis, who help lead the more than 30 altar boys who serve at St. George. The Liturgy marked the beginning of our Camp MET BC Family Reunion, which celebrated the success of our 2015 Summer and Winter Camps, and opened registration for Camp MET BC Summer 2016. The highlight of 2015 was our sold out Summer Camp which had 147 campers and 40 staff participate. After the holy service, a fundraising luncheon was held in the Hellenic Community Hall; the youth then went snow tubing on Mt. Seymour to end the day.
