Pacific Central Deanery Youth Gathering

On Sunday, February 25, a Bay Area teens gathering was held at Holy Trinity Cathedral in San Francisco.  The young adults — mostly this time from Santa Rosa’s St. Seraphim Cathedral and Holy Trinity — gathered in the afternoon and enjoyed a couple of hours of spontaneous board games and fellowship time.  After a pizza dinner, Archpriest Kirill Sokolov and Priest Andrew Smith led a lesson on the 17-year-old Joseph and his brothers of Genesis 37.  The group then headed to a local bowling alley for friendly competition and a fair number of gutter balls.  The teens expressed gratitude to the chaperones who facilitated this day together.

The parishes of the Pacific Central Deanery, Diocese of the West, alternate hosting 8-12th graders for teen gatherings throughout the year in what began as an organic response to the connections and encouragement our teens were making with each other in the Church, especially at St. Eugene’s Summer Camp.  This year’s camp is scheduled for June 24-29, 2024, at the Armenian Camp outside of Dunlap, CA.  More information is available here: https://www.steugenecamp.org
