The activities for the whole wekeend are among others workshops, seminars, gala party, cruise, a Holy mass and farewell lunch. The theme of this years convention is “You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world…”

May God enlighten our youth to go the right path in their lives.

This is the formal invitation of the convention written by Fr. Stephanos Issa.

To the Syriac Orthodox Youth of North America:
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! By God’s grace, it is an honour for me to invite you to join us in the 2010 Syriac Orthodox Youth Convention at St. Barsaumo Church in Toronto, Canada, from July 1 to July 4, 2010. Our Youth Convention Committee and church members have planned a time of spiritual refreshment and enjoyment for you to participate with fellow worshippers from Canada and the United States.

This year’s Convention Theme is found in Matthew 5:13-14, “You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world…” As Christians, we are members of Christ and represent His message and teachings through our lives. As Christ lives within us, His light shines through us and spreads His message to open the eyes of those who do not know Him, for the praise of our Father in Heaven. It is an indescribable blessing to let the Lord work through us and give meaning to our lives and the lives of others.

I am very excited to have you join us and hope to spend time together learning more about the Lord’s desire and giving praise to Him. Among spiritual gatherings and workshops, this will also be a time of fun and laughter together as we have many activities planned for you. I pray that you will have a safe trip in July and that the Lord blesses you always.

Yours truly in Christ,

Very Reverend Father Stephanos Issa
