· A Physical Exercise & Challenge (Running an Obstacle Course) – Fr. Ciprian, together with a couple of his brothers, another Orthodox priest from our Metropolis, and a few other Orthodox faithful, will be running a race in the Twin Cities to raise funds for wounded warriors. While this physical challenge of personal discipline to train and run this 10-12 mile obstacle course is really not that difficult when objectively compared to the Orthodox challenge of a true spiritual journey of Great Lent, your prayers for the well-being and successful completion of all his team members are appreciated J --- A Spiritual Exercise & Challenge (Praying “The Jesus Prayer” – Sat, May 26, 9:00am) – A week after the physical challenge of the race, Fr. Ciprian invites any adult of our parish to join him in a spiritual exercise and challenge of praying “The Jesus Prayer” for as long as it took him to run the course. This will take somewhere in the vicinity of 4 hours – the exact time duration will be announced on Sun, May 20th.
