11 August 2010
On August 8 the annual Ss. Boris & Gleb’s children’s summer camp of the A.S. Pushkin’s parish school (www.pushkinschool.org) at St. Nicholas cathedral in Montreal, Quebec, completed this season.
This year the camp was organized in a beautiful valley north of Montreal in the area of Val-Des-Lacs.
A spacious two story cottage, with many comfortable rooms, a large dining room, well-equipped kitchen, and roomy hall, is situated there next to a mountain brook, surrounded by park forests. Next to the cottage is a fenced in swimming pool.
Aside from the various excursions, fishing, and of course, playing in the open air in grass covered fields, the children – during the lessons in the Law of God – prepared for the traditional divine service at the end of the summer rest.
On Sunday morning, in the hall decorated with flowers, His Grace, Gabriel, Bishop of Montreal & Canada, served the Divine Liturgy. The children’s choir, conducted by subdeacon Grigoriy Vasilievitch Borovik, sang melodiously and beautifully. Of almost forty people present – young and old – majority confessed and received Holy Communion.
After the dismissal of the Liturgy, everyone was invited to the festive meal. The main dish, for the majority, was the freshly cooked fish that the young fishermen caught at the dawn of the same day.
