JOHNSTOWN, PA — [Diocesan Chancery] His Eminence Metropolitan Gregory has established a new Youth Ministry Event in our Diocese for youth ages 5-18. It is entitled “The Vine and the Branches” and is designed to help our children maintain a strong connection to Christ and one another. The Vine and the Branches is an online event that will take place on Sunday, September 27, 2020 from 6:30pm – 8pm. It is a first-of-its-kind Event in our Diocese and will bring together our Diocesan children all of whom are challenged right now to maintain a strong connection to Christ, to His Church and to one another. Our children feel acutely the negative effects of physical distancing. Even in the online world, through love and prayer, we can help our children overcome those effects.
