Save the Date for the first Byzantine Catholic Young Adult Convocation!
Called. Transfigured. Sent.
Join us for the 2019 Byzantine Catholic Young Adult Convocation: Called. Transfigured. Sent. from August 1-4, 2019 in NYC!
This four-day convocation will include celebrations of the Divine Liturgy, talks by inspiring Catholic speakers, opportunities for fellowship, sightseeing in New York City, and more! Together, we’ll explore what discipleship means in the modern world through the lens of the Transfiguration and go forth feeling “transfigured” in our own faith. Open to all – you do not have to be Catholic to attend!
View our flyer here or register today (registration open through June 15).
Accommodations: We have made housing arrangements for discounted accommodations with Freehand Hotel in NYC, which is a fifteen minute walk from St. Mary’s. Upon registration for the convocation, participants will receive a confirmation email containing the code for the discounted rate (https://freehandhotels.com/new-york/).
