About Our Program

The Diocesan Young Women's encounter has been in existence since 2014.   Established by His Grace, Bishop Gregory, the annual retreat program is designed specifically for our young women to provide them an opportunity to spend time in fellowship with each other, have fun, and pray together.  They learn about their faith and to listen for God’s call to each of them to use their unique gifts and abilities.  Taking place annually during the last week of June at Sts Peter and Paul Church in Windber, PA, the participants are given an opportunity to  enjoy each other's company; learn more about the Orthodox Faith and spend some quality time with their Bishop and dedicated priests and panis of the Diocese.

The current Director of the Young Women's Encounter Program is Pani Eleni Stagon.
