Registration Opens For 2019 Young Women's Encounter

JOHNSTOWN, PA --  [Diocesan Chancery] -  Registration is now open for the SIXTH Annual Diocesan Young Women's Encounter which will take place from Sunday, June 30th to Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019 at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Windber, PA. We encourage our young women, ages 12 to 18 to attend.

This engaging experience will highlight how young women can live our Orthodox Faith and serve the Church with their own unique gifts. The YWE 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. This year we will have the blessing to spend some time at the Orthodox Monastery of the Holy Transfiguration in Ellwood City, PA.

Registration will be primarily online and is open now!  Click Here To Register.

Please encourage interested families to find more information about this event by looking through past photo albums which can be found at

Space will be limited to the first thirty respondents, so participants are urged to register in a timely manner.  Registration Deadline is Friday, June 7, 2019.

All parishes of the Diocese are urged to underwrite the $100.00 participation fee for their young women in recognition of all the ways that these young women serve their parishes. Kindly have registration fees paid by the registration deadline. Checks can be sent to:
