About this Event

Hosted by the Eparchy of Passaic and Theosis in Action, the convocation will take place August 1st-4th at St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church in New York City and is open to all young adults ages 18-35. The weekend of the convocation will coincide with the Feast of the Transfiguration on August 6th. The Gospel narrative for this feast defines what it means to be a disciple of Christ and how to live that calling in one’s day to day life. The convocation will thus be divided into three parts, each addressing one step on the journey to discipleship:

Together we are:

  • Called to Discipleship.
  • Transfigured through a new life in Christ.
  • Sent to proclaim the Gospel to the world.

The goal of this convocation is to bring these themes together by engaging young adults to recognize their own call to discipleship, and to unite and foster relationships throughout the Byzantine Metropolia and beyond.

During the convocation, there will be time for prayer and self-reflection, social events providing time for fellowship each evening, special opportunities to see the sights of New York City, and dynamic keynote speakers: Father Boniface Hicks, OSB (http://www.fatherboniface.org), Mother Gabriella Houck of Christ the Bridegroom Monastery (http://www.christthebridegroom.org), and Nick Redd of St. Paul's Outreach (iamnickredd.com). These speakers were chosen because they exemplify one aspect of the convocation theme of being Called, Transfigured, and Sent. Together these speakers represent a cross-section of individuals dedicated to young adult ministry in the Catholic Church today.

*** Please note that St. Mary's Byzantine Catholic Church is NOT Handicap Accessible***
