Youth Camp and Pilgrimage support

With the blessing of Vladika Irenei, there is the possibility of some financial support for young people from ROCOR parishes for both the St Seraphim Youth Camp and the  St Alban's Youth Pilgrimage to Russia.

A letter from the committee administering this fund on behalf of the Diocese can be accessed here. Applicants and their famililies should have the support and blessing of their parish priests or Vladika Irenei. The Diocese is very keen to promote youth activities. If you have ideas as how this could be done please contact the Diocesan Chancellery.
