Our Mission

The National ACRY (American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Youth) is is the national youth organization of the American Carpatho-Russian Diocese of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. It is divided into two separate organizations. The Junior ACRY (for ages 8 to 18) and the Senior ACRY (for ages 18 and older).  Every parish in the diocese is encouraged to have an ACRY Chapter in their parish.  Currently there are 25 active chapters throughout the diocese.

Mission and Vision Statement:
