This summer will be unlike any other at St. Nersess as Fr. Stepanos Doudoukjian gears up for his last summer as the Director of the Summer Conferences. After 13 years leading the popular programs and three years as Director of Youth and Vocations, Fr. Stepanos will be returning to parish ministry in September.
"It has been a wonderful journey meeting so many faithful and talented young men and women over the past 13 years," Fr. Stepanos said. "I have learned and grown in my own faith in this joyful ministry."
Fr. Stepanos was appointed Director of the Summer Conferences in 1998 after having attended dozens of St. Nersess conferences himself as a teenager. "It was while attending a St. Nersess conference that I first felt God calling me to become a priest," he says. "After that, I never missed St. Nersess in the summer." It was at a St. Nersess Christmas Conference that he met his future wife, Yeretzgin Paulette.
"I am looking forward to a wonderful summer this year, with a few surprises for my last season as Director," Fr. Stepanos said. "This is my last hoorah!"
Don't miss out on this summer's extraordinary conferences. While the High School "C" session is already full, space is still available in all of the other conferences including the Deacons' Training Program.
