the studio and completing an icon! No studio art experience is
necessary. All materials— paper, canvas panel, paint, brushes,
palette, etc.— are included in the Registration fee. For

Marriage Encounter Weekend is a positive and personal experience for
a couple which offers them a technique of loving communication that
they can, use for the rest of their lives. It's an opportunity to
look deeply into their relationship with each other and with God.
Also, it's a time to share their feelings, their hopes, fears, joys
and frustrations. Marriage Encounter is an Orthodox expression open
to all happily married couples regardless of faith, race, age,
education, or financial status. Marriage Encounter is not a retreat,
nor is it a marriage clinic or sensitivity course. It is not a time
to look at the past but rather to look at your future together. The
weekend offers a positive and simple experience, which enhances the
relationship between husband and wife. To register, please
call Fr. Jim Pappas at St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Fresno at
