Western Prelacy Participation in North American Youth Seminar in Canada


From June 9 – 11, 2017, the seventh annual North American Youth Seminar was held at Camp Iawah in Kingston, Ontario, under the auspices of H.E. Archbishop Papken Tcharian, Prelate of Canada, and organized by the Prelacy of Canada’s Armenian Religious Education Council. Over one hundred youth attended, including youth group members of Holy Trinity Church of Fresno, Menas Arisian and Alina Arakelian.

The retreat is held each year with the purpose of strengthening the faith of the youth, to form a spiritual bond with God, meet and make friends with other Armenians, and enjoy a weekend of fellowship.

The seminar officially convened on Friday evening with prayer and welcoming remarks by Archbishop Tcharian. The next day began with Sunrise Service and continued with spiritual reflections, lectures, and round table discussions on various topics led by Very Rev. Fr. Keghard Khusbegian, Very Rev. Fr. Vartan Tashjian, Rev. Fr. Paul Guirguis, and Deacon Dr. George Leylegian.

On Sunday morning, participants attended Divine Liturgy celebrated by Very Rev. Fr. Vartan Tashjian. Archbishop Tcharian delivered his message to the youth during the service.
