JOHNSTOWN, PA - In recent months, interest has been expressed by the SCOBA endorsed Orthodox Christian Network, (OCN) to collaborate with our diocese in producing educational programing for the popular  Come Receive the Light Radio Program. Of particular interest to OCN is the work of the Diocesan Apostolate For Youth  (DAY). Plans are being made to produce several Orthodox Teen Talk Online (OTTO) programs during the coming year which will feature diocesan youth informally dialoguing about contemporary moral issues facing teenagers. 

Along with His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas, several members of the Diocesan Apostolate For Youth have been asked to speak on some aspect of  Youth Ministry.

On November 21, 2008. Fr. Andrew Fetchina, the director of  DAY spoke on the topic Raising Faithful Kids in Today's World. Click Here to listen to Fr. Andrew's interview.
