For four days around Armenian Christmas, college students will once again discover why Armenians give "glory to the newborn King."
The annual St. Nersess Christmas Conference will take place from January 4-7, 2006 at the Seminary. As they do each year, college students from around the United States and Canada will flock to the Armenian spiritual oasis of St. Nersess for four days to retreat, refresh and retool from the rigors and stresses of college life.
The Christmas Conference is once again being co-sponsored by the A.C.Y.O.A.
Together with friends and colleagues, participants will celebrate the traditional Armenian Christmas services of January 5 (Jrakalooyts) in the intimate seminary chapel. On January 6, participants will join in the Christmas Divine Liturgy and Blessing of Water at St. Vartan Cathedral before spending the rest of the day enjoying Christmas in New York City.
In the warm and inviting atmosphere of St. Nersess, participants will also have plenty of time to renew friendships and to renew their spirit ahead of the Spring semester that will await them at college.
The program will be led by Fr. Stepanos Doudoukjian, Director of Vocations and Youth, and Nancy Basmajian, Executive Secretary of the A.C.Y.O.A.
