Regional Conferences/Meetings

The ACYOA Central Council facilitates regional meetings and retreats to provide a forum for open and honest discussion, cooperation and communication among the chapters in a given region. Based on the needs of a particular region, the gathering can also provide education or spiritual growth.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the upcoming ACYOA Seniors Lenten Retreat series organized by the ACYOA Central Council. The theme follows the Diocesan theme, Living the Gospel of Christ: Legacy of Our Martyrs.

The retreats will take place in three different locations, offering the young adults of your parish communities the opportunity to participate in either location.

New England: Saturday, February 28 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at Armenian Church of the Holy Resurrection, New Britain, CT

Midwest: Saturday, March 14 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at St. Mesrob Armenian Church, Racine WI

NY, NJ, and Mid-Atlantic: Saturday, March 21 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at the Armenian Church of the Holy Martyrs, Bayside, NY

Online registration is now available for all three retreats by clicking on the links above. Participants can also use the “bitly” at the bottom of the flyer to register online. Facebook pages have been created to promote the retreats, and young adults may register online through there by clicking on “get tickets.” There is no cost for participants to attend.

The Coordinator of Youth and Young Adult Ministries, Lorie Odabashian, will be processing the registration, and you may reach out to her with any questions. She can be reached at 212-686-0710 ext. 143 (tel:212-686-0710 ext. 143) or by email at
