With great joy and enthusiasm, the Diocese announces the availability of the curriculum for all levels (junior high, high school, and college) participating in this year’s Youth Spiritual Competition on August 29, 2009 at Holy Virgin Mary Coptic Orthodox Church in Los Angeles.
The YSC started in the year 2001 with the start of the new millennium as a way of encouraging our youth to grow in their faith. The competition is used as a fun way of promoting deeper study and understanding in selected areas: Hymns, Bible Study, and Church Studies… a Spiritual Triathlon of sorts.
Team registration forms and additional information will be made available in the coming days. For now, teams may start reviewing the curriculum in anticipation of this wonderful event that brings youth from throughout the Diocese together.
If you have any questions concerning the competition, please e-mail [email protected]
