- Real Break Mt. Athos 2019
Trip Mission – Inspired by Real Break Constantinople and Thessaloniki, Real Break Mount Athos will aim to provide over a dozen Orthodox Christian male college students with the opportunity to journey from the United States to Thessaloniki, Greece, in order to personally experience the living Christian presence and witness of the Holy Mountain of Athos. The host institution will be the historic Great Church of the Theotokos, that is, the Church of the Acheiropoietos, which was built in the center of Byzantine Thessaloniki in the fifth century. During Real Break Mount Athos, the students will visit several of their historic monastic communities and venerate the numerous relics and icons that have adorned this Garden of the Virgin Mary for centuries. In addition, the pilgrimage will include various sacred sites of Northern Greece.
