Trip Dates – March 24-31, 2018
Trip Mission – The Real Break Alaska team will work alongside the community of St. John Orthodox Cathedral in Eagle River, Alaska on community service projects with the needy in the surrounding areas. In addition, participants will explore the greater Anchorage area visiting local parishes and experiencing Alaskan culture and life.
The St. John Orthodox Cathedral and fifty-five acres of church land are situated at the base of the Chugach Mountains, twelve miles outside of Anchorage; Alaska’s largest city. The facilities of the Cathedral include an elementary school, a guest-home, and a chapel, which is dedicated to St. Sergius of Radonezh. The Cathedral also hosts the annual Eagle River Institute of Orthodox Christian Studies and the St. John Summer Camp for teens. Next to the Cathedral is the St. James House, which offers a one-year residential program for young singles.
St. James House, a ministry of Saint John Orthodox Cathedral in Eagle River, Alaska, provides a one-year residential program where young, single people live in an extended-family setting and become better prepared to live in the world as faithful Orthodox Christian men and women. This is accomplished primarily through evening studies, household work projects, and participation in the liturgical and community life of St. John Cathedral, as well as their daily interaction with one another. The household itself is run by a resident family whose goal is to mentor the program’s participants in facing everyday challenges responsibly and with faith in God. The pastor and clergy of St. John Orthodox Cathedral also oversee the program by providing instruction and spiritual direction.
