For college students, the pressure of final exams and term papers will all be over soon, but at what price? In a little over a week thousands of American-Armenian college students will stumble back home weary and worn-out physically and spiritually!
They shoud PLAN NOW to come to the annual St. Nersess Christmas Conference from January 5-8, 2005. Here for a few days they will have the chance to unwind, relax, and recharge with their friends in the warm and loving environment of St. Nersess Seminary. The fireplace will be burning. The Christmas tree is up. The food and fellowship are perfect.
On January 5 we will celebrate the traditional Armenian Christmas Eve services Jrakalooyts in the seminary chapel. On January 6 we will relocate to St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral in New York for Christmas Badarak and the Blessing of Water and spend the rest of the day and evening enjoying Christmas in New York City.
The program will be led by Fr. Daniel Findikyan, Seminary Dean; Fr. Stepanos Doudoukjian, Director of Youth Programs; and Nancy Basmajian, Executive Secretary of the A.C.Y.O.A., which is once again co-sponsoring the Christmas Conference.
The Christmas Conference is open to college-age men and women. The cost of the program including tuition, materials, room and board, and all the Christmas cookies you can eat, is $250. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants. The conference will begin at noon on Wednesday, January 5 and conclude at 2PM on Saturday, January 8.
