ACYOA Juniors & Seniors

ACYOA Juniors

The Armenian Church Youth Organization of America, ACYOA Juniors includes the 13-17 years of age young adults.


St. Gregory’s Juniors organize events and raise money to help several organizations in the USA and Armenia. Juniors also serve in many church-related events. As a group of active members, we were able to continue our celebrated traditions and also host new events. Over the past year, the ACYOA has worked to successfully uphold the five circles of the cross: worship, education, service, fellowship, and witness.


Some events the Juniors plan include Sports Weekend, the Lenten Retreat, Thanksgiving Meal Drive, and Holiday events. We also donate to various Armenian organizations, including FAR, CASP, and others.
