The X Annual Saint Herman's West Youth Conference was held at Holy Ascension Church of Sacramento and Saint Silouan's Monastery of Sonora from the 26th to the 30th of December 2016.
Over 60 youth from around the Western American Diocese came to Sacramento, the capitol city of the State of California, for this annual event, which included edifying lectures, panel discussions, field trips, and a pilgrimage to Saint Silouan's Monastery. The conference ended with a banquet and talent show held in Jamestown, CA.
Keynote speakers were His Grace Irenei Bishop of Sacramento and Archpriest David Moser of St. Seraphim's Church in Boise, ID.
Many thanks to Archpriest Boris Henderson, the clergy, Sisterhood and parishioners of Holy Ascension Church, the community of Saint Silouan's Monastery and the Youth Committee of the Western American Diocese for all their labors in making the conference a success!
