On Saturday, April 14, young adults from the midwest took part in a one day spring retreat at St. James Armenian Church in Evanston, IL. The day focused on understanding lay ministry, and participants had the opportunity to explore this topic through Bible study, discussion, and reflection.
 Retreat sessions were led by the Rev. Fr. Hovhan Khoja-Eynatyan, pastor of St. James, Rev. Fr. Yeprem Kelegian, pastor of St. Mesrob Church of Racine, WI; and Nancy Basmajian, ACYOA executive secretary. Some 20 people took part in the daylong program.

"This retreat helped me reflect on my spiritual discipline and discipleship,” said Arie Zakaryan of St. James Church.
