The Armenian Church Youth Organization of America (ACYOA) is a Diocesan-wide organization which serves the spiritual, cultural, and social needs of Armenian youth. The ACYOA focuses its activities around the five “Circles of the Cross”—Worship, Witness, Education, Service, and Fellowship.

The ACYOA of St. Gregory of Narek Church takes part in many parish programs. Some of its activities include the annual trip to Hye Camp in Illinois, regional retreats, and the Palm Sunday brunch. The group also runs the beverage stand at the church’s Annual Bazaar.

Please join our youth group for ages 13-18 by contacting our Youth Advisor Lisa Nersesian Richardson: or Rev. Fr. Hratch Sargsyan at
