YAL is Back and Ready to COMMIT in San Diego

“Let us commit ourselves and one another and our whole life to Christ our God.”

From the Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom

 

Are you ready to COMMIT to your faith, your vocation, and your life? The Young Adult League (YAL) Conference over Labor Day Weekend 2022 in San Diego, California is where you want to be! This will be the fourth YAL Conference since 2019 hosted by the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco, and promises to be bigger and better than ever!

“I am thrilled that the YAL movement has become an integral part of our Metropolis ministries and I look forward to this year’s conference in San Diego,” remarked Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco. “I have witnessed the transformation of our young adults these past few years as we have brought back this vibrant ministry, and I know that it will continue to have a positive impact on their lives and their involvement in the church. This is a wonderful opportunity to commit themselves to the Lord and live out their faith as exemplary Orthodox Christians.”

Conference attendees will enjoy a full weekend of events, workshops, worship, and relaxation from September 1 – 5, 2022 at the Wyndham Bayside Resort, in sunny San Diego, CA. Highlights of the weekend include engaging workshops, worship, dances, a Gala, and a special maritime event “Top Gun YAL” aboard the USS Midway aircraft carrier in the San Diego harbor. Diakonia is also an important part of the YAL ministry and will include a program to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that helps veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound while serving in the military.

Online registration for the Conference is now open at www.sanfran.goarch.org/YAL.

Registration includes all meals, events, workshops, transportation during the weekend, and much more!

Space is limited so don’t wait to book your travel and secure your hotel. The 2019 and 2021 Conferences were sell-outs with participants from over 43 states across the Archdiocese, so be sure to COMMIT by registering today!
