With the blessing of Their Eminences Hilarion, Metropolitan of Eastern America & New York, and Gabriel, Archbishop of Montreal & Canada, the annual Saint Herman Youth Conference will be hosted by Holy Trinity Cathedral in Toronto, ON, Canada.

The conference will commence on the evening of Tuesday, December 23rd and conclude on the morning of Saturday, December 27th. The conference is open to all youth over the age of 16.

All registrations will be managed online at the Conference website here.

The guest speaker is Dr. Lynne Pappas, a psychologist and therapist from northern California. Her specialty is adolescent psychology, and she has extensive experience. She is a member of the Serbian Orthodox Church and speaks throughout the country on social issues from an Orthodox perspective. In addition to the lecture, Dr. Pappas will participate in workshops and discussion groups. Roundtable discussions will be conducted by clergy and experienced leaders of the Toronto parish. Social activities are planned which will give the opportunity for youth to interact and develop strong friendships.

The cost of the conference is $275.00 per person and includes all lodging (quad occupancy), meals, and transportation from the hotel to the church. The deadline for registration is Thursday, November 20th, and after that date the cost will increase with no guarantee of space remaining. Any youth who need a scholarship may contact the conference at the e-mail listed on the website here. All clergy are encouraged to participate and bring a delegation from their parish.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
