Does my daily life conflict with my faith?
Young adults from the greater New York-New Jersey area will gather at St. Nersess Seminary on Saturday, October 1 for a day of respite from the pressures of the daily grind to consider their true commitment to God.
Prayer, Bible Study, and relaxed exchange with friends in the tranquil ambience of the Seminary are sure to lift the spirits and shore up the faith of all who attend.
"It's a fast-paced and furious life out there," said Macrina Aivazian, one of the co-organizers of the event. "The rules in business and corporate life don't always agree with the most basic Christian principles. We need to talk about that," she said.
Aivazian is organizing the Young Adults Day with Olivia Derderian on behalf of the ACYOA.
"St. Nersess is the obvious place to spend a day with Armenian Church friends," Derderian said, adding, "It's our home away from home."
The Young Adults Day at St. Nersess is open to all men and women of post-college age. The day will include presentations by Aivazian and Derderian, together with V. Rev. Fr. Daniel Findikyan, Seminary Dean, and St. Nersess seminarian Eric Vozzy.
The day will begin promptly at 9:00AM with morning worship in the Seminary chapel, and will conclude at 8:00PM. Lunch and dinner will be served. Suggested donation is $40.
For further information, or to register for the retreat, contact Macrina Aivazian, Olivia Derderian or the Seminary.
