ACYOA

“The ACYOA is not another organization formed to bring Armenian youth together. It is much more than that. It is a body which has to shoulder the burden of responsibility of passing on the Armenian Church tradition to the Armenian Youth of Armenian Parentage, and thus assume the continued existence of the Armenian Church in America. It has a sacred mission of bringing the eternally new divine message of Christ to the minds and hearts of its members and others, through the magnificent instrument which is the Armenian Church It has to strive to make the Armenian cultural heritage a living factor in America. It has the aim of uplifting the spirit of its members, and thereby enriching our community life.”
-Abp. Tiran Nersoyan founder of the ACYOA
Dear Potential ACYOA Member,
     On behalf of the St. Mary ACYOA Sr. Chapter of Livingston, NJ, I would like to extend my invitation to you to join our chapter. We are looking for youth  to become more active in our Church community. We have just officially established ourselves as a chapter at a place to call home. Although our numbers are small now, we will grow in size and in faith together with your participation. We intend to be active in the life of the Church and wish to be a good example for future ACYOA members. We plan on participating in ACYOA events at large, as well as having events for our chapter along with regular meetings and activities starting in the fall incorporating the 5 circles of the Cross. We would also like to be involved in Sports Weekends, Leadership Conferences, and other Christian programs.
We would love for you to become a member of your home Church’s ACYOA Sr. Chapter. Der Shnork and the Parish Council are in full support of our endeavors. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time. I am looking forward to hearing from you and your participation in the future.
