JOHNSTOWN, PA — [Diocesan Chancery] – Plans are now in place for the FIFTH Annual Diocesan Young Women’s Encounter which will take place from Sunday, July 1st to Wednesday, July 4th, 2018 at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Windber, PA. We encourage our young women, ages 12 to 18 to attend.

This engaging experience will highlight how young women can live our Orthodox Faith and serve the Church with their own unique gifts. This year we will particularly be focusing on prayer, with the Mother of God as a model for all Orthodox Christians, and the verse Romans 12:12, “… rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation and continuing steadfastly in prayer…”
