Youth Rally

The Diocese of New England Youth Rally serves as a spiritual oasis, where young members of our flock come together in the spirit of fellowship and worship. Nestled in a camp setting, this event transcends the mere confines of a gathering; it's a journey through the tapestry of Orthodox Christian education. Drawing upon the teachings of the Bible (1 Timothy 4:12) and the wisdom of the Holy Fathers like St. John Chrysostom, the rally aims to equip our youth to be beacons of Orthodoxy in the modern world. Beyond the boundaries of liturgical sessions and educational discussions, it offers a platform for making and renewing friendships anchored in Christ. And let's not forget, amid the profundity, there's also a wealth of fun activities to engage in! As St. Basil the Great once observed, "Young people must be made to distinguish between helpful and injurious knowledge, keeping clearly in mind the Christian's purpose in life." This event is a cornerstone in that educational edifice. So come, let us "run with endurance the race that is set before us" (Hebrews 12:1), and make this Youth Rally a monumental step in our eternal journey towards the Kingdom of God.
