Houston, TX - With the blessing of the Episcopal Council of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America the 2013 Youth Conference will be held in Houston, Texas from Wednesday, June 26 through Sunday, June 30. The theme is "Faith and Courage: Being an Orthodox Teen Today and Beyond.” The retreat is open to all high school students.

On Sunday June 30th our youth will attend the Divine Liturgy at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Houston. Lunch will follow.
St. Thomas University has all the amenities that we need to have a successful retreat full of spiritual and social activities.
The retreat will include presentations and discussions related to important topics that our youth face every day. At the conference they will have the oppurtunity to interact with other high school students from throughout North and South America.
There is NO LIMIT to the number of participants each parish can send. Each teenager will be required to provide a $175 registration fee as well as transportation to Houston, TX. All room and board costs will be paid by the Central Church Council.
All registrations must be received no later than June 1, 2012. It is very important that your complete registration be submitted by this date so that the coordinators can prepare for the retreat logistics.
For info call telephone number is (717) 303-3611 and email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you will support the future of the church by sending youth from your parish to the retreat.
