Inspired by the Department of Youth & Young Adult Ministries of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, the Orthodox Christian Network is proud to feature outstanding programs of “young adults coming together in faith, fellowship, and service” .
The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and the Y2AM Team are challenging young adults across the country to step up and serve their communities during a weekend of service, fellowship and worship. Uniting people from across the country to achieve a common goal, strengthened by our common faith in the Lord. One weekend, multiple locations, all in His name.
On October 17th and 18th, young adults across the country will be coming together to participate in REAL Weekend. Though we may live in different parts of the country, it’s our chance to unite for a weekend dedicated to serving our neighborhoods, building community and straightening our Faith.
