Youth from across the Orthodox Church in America are encouraged to attend the 20th All-American Council [AAC] in Baltimore, MD on July 18-22, 2022. Registration for the Youth Program is now available online. During the week-long program for youth who, as of the fall 2022, are grades K to 12, participants will explore their faith, meet Orthodox Christian youth from across North America, and experience the sights and sounds of Baltimore.
“The All-American Council provides a unique experience for our youth,” said Archpriest Benjamin Tucci, who is overseeing the program. “This program will provide our youth with an opportunity to combine their talents with many other Orthodox young people and build relationships that will be treasured for life,” added Fr. Ben.
Each day, education programs and workshop activities will explore the theme of Christian vocations along the lines of the theme of the All-American Council, “Becoming Vessels of Grace.”
More information about the agenda and the activities of the Youth Program will be shared in the coming weeks.
