Holy Spirit Anglican Church is sponsoring its third annual Men’s Campout and Hike to be held on June 5-7 at Riverside County Park in Idyllwild, CA. The event is open to men from all churches in the San Diego Deanery and promises to be a great outdoors adventure for the attendees. Fr. Brian Hughes, who is the event coordinator, writes that “the weekend offers a unique time to be together as men of faith, to be in a different environment than we normally are, and thus perhaps a bit more open to hearing God's voice.

James Linton (Christ Church Yucaipa) will lead the retreat discussions. (read more...)
