WATCH at home and COME to DISCUSS the simplicity, the humbleness, the remoteness, the miracles which converge into creating a timeless snapshot of the Orthodox spirituality. This is a Family Faith Formation Night opened to our St. Raphael School families and to our greater Schole Academy community.
