National Fall Retreat

The ACYOA Seniors National Fall Retreat is a new program for the young adults of our Diocese. Participants are encouraged to attend this faith-filled retreat for a weekend of reflection and an escape from daily hectic life.

The 2021 ACYOA Seniors National Fall Retreat took the form of three regional, in-person retreats hosted by the ACYOA Central Council - as well as an abbreviated virtual retreat on November 7 for those unable to attend in-person. The in-person retreats were held at the following locations:

  • Mid-Atlantic (Saturday, October 16th): St. Leon Armenian Church, Fair Lawn, NJ

  • New England (Saturday, November 6): Holy Trinity Armenian Church, Cambridge, MA

  • Midwest (Saturday, November 6): St. James Armenian Church, Evanston, IL

Over 60 young adults from across the Eastern Diocese participated in a series of engaging workshops and discussions, including a scripture study and an interpretation of the word “liturgy” and what that means for our parish communities.
