Monday May 8th, 2011 - Our principal and 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Anzivino has just returned from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Israel.  Pictured with her mother (left), they embarked on a 7-day pilgrimage with fellow parishioners of St. Nicholas Orhtodox Church of Warren and several clergy from the Warren and Youngstown areas.
This pilgrimage was much like a marathon run.  For seven straight days, from dawn to dusk they traveled Israel's most Holy of sites and cities.  She took home with her many icons, pictures and gifts for her family at home, at her church, and her family at Holy Trinity.  Most importantly, she brought back with her a renewed sense of spirit, and an affirmation of her faith.
She will back teaching two days after returning from the Holy Land.  She will share her students, staff and friends her experiences, which are almost beyond words.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  In this case, that's entirely true.  We will post a few articles on our website of slideshows, which could illustrate - at least a little - of what our local pilgrims had experienced in Israel.  Thank you Mrs. Anzivino for sharing with us your pilgrimage!
