The Eastern Catholic Re-Evangelization Center (ECRC) hosted their tenth annual spiritual festival, Awake My Soul, on Saturday, September 9. Awake My Soul started with a testimony from seminarians Deacon John Jaddou, Deacon Fadie Gorgies, Rodney Abasso and Perrin Atisha. The seminarians spoke of their recent mission trip to Iraq, what they saw and how it changed their views. Following the seminarians’ testimony, Mother Olga and Dr. John Wood lead the Men and Women’s Breakout Sessions. Following dinner, the night wound down with a speech from keynote speaker Fr. Joshua Genig. Following Fr. Joshua Genig’s speech, Awake My Soul ended with a performance from Ignite the Spirit, who were accompanied by The Vigil Project, and a midnight mass.
