Dear Brother Priests, Deacons and Subdeacons, Consecrated Men and Women and Lay Faithful, Cir.23.40
We are happy to announce that our third annual MYA Eparchial Conference will be held October 13-15 2023 at St. Anthony Maronite Church in Glen Allen, Virginia. We thank Chorbishop John Faris and the St. Anthony Parish for their generosity and for opening their doors to host our MYA for a fruitful conference weekend. The MYA attendees look forward to meeting the parish following the 11am Divine Liturgy. There will be a brunch hosted by the parish for all to attend.
Please help us to promote this event in your parish and especially among your young adults (ages 18-39). It would be ideal to have at least two young adults from each of our parishes attend this event. Our theme will focus on Navigating Relationships and God’s Love for Us. This topic will be applicable for every relationship stage: single, dating, engaged, and married young adults.
The MYA Conference Registration Fee is $239 (early bird pricing ends Sept. 10) and includes the following:
· All spiritual and social events held at the Parish
· Full Course Meals (Friday Night and Saturday)
· Lebanese Hafli (Party)
· Sunday Brunch hosted by St. Anthony Parish
Please note: This fee does not include the hotel room which is $119 per night, plus tax (and can accommodate up to 4 people per 2 double bed rooms).

We also encourage you to invite a young adult at your parish to make an announcement in the coming weeks about the MYA Conference inviting their peers to attend.
Here is an announcement you can use for your bulletin and social media:
