To whom it may concern:
It is with great joy that I write this letter in recognition of a fantastic non-profit organization, Antiochian Village. Founded in 1978, Antiochian Village is a Christian conference and retreat center located in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania.
Antiochian Village is owned and operated by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. It was established through the vision and leadership of the Archbishop, Metropolitan Philip, who dreamt of a place where the faithful of all ages could meet, worship and become closer to God, away from the distractions of daily life.
Today, Antiochian Village offers a picturesque, comfortable and affordable Christian setting for retreats and group events. Its facility includes 100 guest rooms, a large dining room, 12 meeting rooms, a bookstore and gift shop, a fitness center, a chapel, a theological research library and a heritage museum. It also has numerous outdoor amenities which include a wooded meditation trail, miles of walking trails, a picnic pavilion, a campfire area and a sports complex.
The Christian welcome and hospitality at Antiochian Village is what truly sets it apart. The moment you arrive you will be greeted by its wonderful staff who are dedicated to you. They truly go the extra mile to ensure the grounds are kept in excellent condition and that every visit is a peaceful and positive one.
I highly recommend Antiochian Village to anyone looking for a place where they can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and be closer to God. Antiochian Village is truly a beautiful place and you will be sure to have a fantastic time there.
