Metropolis of Atlanta Announces
Patriarchal Forum with Youth

On Thursday, January 5, 2006,
as part of the 2006 Patriarchal Epiphany Visitation, the youth of our Metropolis will have a unique, once in a life time experience of visiting with His All Holiness BARTHOLOMEW, Archbishop of Constantinople, New Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch, Archbishop Demetrios of America and Metropolitan Alexios.

The forum of this Celebration of Youth will be open as His All Holiness and walks amongst the children answering questions and having open discussions on any subjects that the children may want to engage
His All Holiness BARTHOLOMEW in.

We have room for 1600 children, ages 5 to 18! The website, has registration forms and other information regarding the hotel and other event reservations. While the registration form for the Celebration of Youth indicates a deadline of December 1, that deadline has been waived and registration has been open as long as there is space available.

We, as Orthodox Christians, must recognize the value as Orthodox families of attending and taking part in the Celebration of Youth and Epiphany on the Centennial Celebration of St. Nicholas Cathedral in Tarpon Springs, Florida.
