DIOCESE OF AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND: January 13, 2015
The Diocese of Australia and New Zealand Hosts Its 50th Parish Youth Conference
On December 26-31, 2014, Kentlyn, a suburb of Sydney, Australia, hosted its 50th Orthodox Youth Conference. Included in the program were meetings with renowned clergymen of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, lectures, seminars, and of course recreational events. Among these were a cruise in Sydney Bay, and the young participants also spent some time at the beach. Exactly a half a century ago, on that very site, the banks of the Georges River, the first Russian Orthodox Youth conference took place.
