Orthodox youth

St. Sergius of Radonezh Church of the parochial school has been actively cooperating with the young people of the National University “Odessa Law Academy” for two years already. We have managed to unite and intrigue University’s active young people, having their hearts and souls touched, with the blessing of Metropolitan of Odessa and Izmail Agafangel and under auspices of Academy’s Administration.
Throughout this time, we have been actively involved in students lives: we have started joint social projects, visited orphanages, arranged meetings between students and teachers for spiritual dialogues and debates, as well as conducted memorable excursions to monasteries and temples of Odessa, thereby broadening their horizons and knowledge of Christianity. We wanted to illustrate young people thus that the Lord is nearby and equally concerned about each of them, and the God’s Temple is always open, so anyone may momently come and put any question to a priest.
And it seems that the young hearts came forward an took interest, and now it is essential not to let this fire of faith, love and hope go out under any circumstances. And we, in return, will try to make efforts for that to happen.
