Our presenter, Presvytera Georget Photos, will conduct this hands-on program. In the morning session, she will demonstrate projects for a wide range of ages. In the afternoon, she will facilitate a session of sharing classroom practices to improve attendance. We urge each participant to bring an idea or project to share with the group.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Presvytera Georget Photos, will travel from Florida to be with us in New England. She is the author of a new 6-volume series, Let Us Live Orthodoxy, which is being published by the Department of Religious Education. This conference will feature these books before they are available to the public! Using crafts, recipes, and projects, the series leads young people to understand and respect the traditions of the Church, enabling them to actively include these traditions in their lives.
