Cantor’s Retreat in Pittsburgh area on October 29

On Saturday, October 29, a one-day spiritual retreat for all cantors will be held at St. Elias Byzantine Catholic 4200 Homestead Duquesne Rd, Munhall, PA, led by Sr. Barbara Jean Mihalchik of the Sisters of Saint Basil the Great.  The theme for the day will be “Personal Prayer and the Cantor”.  Every cantor should pray, apart  from the church services. But many do not know how to get started, or have lost the practice of it. Come learn how to start (or re-start) a personal prayer life.

There will be a Divine Liturgy for the health and needs of our cantors at 9:00 AM, and the retreat will run from 10 AM to 2 PM.  Lunch will be provided.  At 2 PM, there will be a panachida for all our departed cantors.

There is a $10 fee for the retreat, payable at the door.  Please register by October 22 by calling (412) 735-1676 or sending e-mail to

Hope to see you there!
