Dear clergy, parishioners, and parents,
If you consider yourself dedicated to our church, if you feel the future strength of our church rests with our youth, you believe in the power of unity, or you have never attended the convention before, then this is the event for you! If you, as a parishioner or a parent, are looking for ideas and suggestions about how to start, run or improve a youth program, then this convention is for you!
“Why is attendance at the National CYMK Convention beneficial?”
The CYMK-UOY National Executive has worked diligently to put together practical, relevant and engaging sessions that will walk youth and adults through the steps required to start, run, or improve a youth program. The action-packed five-day program consists of youth organizational techniques, financial management skills, promotion and advertising skills, conflict resolution skills, a mini-faith program, and an all-inclusive choir to sing the Divine Liturgy. This event is also an opportunity to form new relationships, share ideas and common interests. Joining efforts at conventions helps on many levels to work towards a greater cause.
This is the opportunity to bring TOGETHER our community, and show our children what it means to be UNITED.
“Who is CYMK-UOY?”
This event is being sponsored by CYMK — the Ukrainian Orthodox Youth group of Canada, established in 1931. Their aim since then has been to foster hard-working individuals of the Ukrainian Orthodox community into leaders with a strong base in their faith, culture and ties to their community. All local youth groups have been active members of their parishes, whether donating money for windows, vestments, chandeliers, or orphanages or planning and leading social-events for the parish.
The CYMK and USRL Convention will help you gain enthusiasm, empathy and love from those who live far away and enlighten your spirituality as we pray together.
CYMK-UOY National Executive President
National Youth Organizer
