Attention Diocesan College Students! 2014 OCF College Conference Registration Now Open

JOHNSTOWN, PA -  The Chancery is pleased to announce that  registration for the 2014 College Conferences is now open.  The conferences will be held during Christmas Break in two locations:  St. Nicholas Ranch in Dunlap, Calif  and  Antiochian Village in Bolivar, Pa.;  each centering on Orthodox Christian Fellowship's (OCF) theme for the year - "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness, into His own marvelous light.”  1 Peter 2:9


Annually, nearly 400 college students from across North America participate in College Conference to learn and grow closer in their Orthodox Faith in an exemplary display of pan-Orthodox fellowship. Each four-day conference includes a prominent keynote speaker, along with workshops led by clergy and lay leaders who are experts in their related fields.  


Last year, Bishop Gregory was joined by a number of  Diocesan College Students at College Conference East who had an awesome experience!
