"For our good, for our happiness, at least let us make a promise to ourselves, that from this day, from this hour, from this very moment we shall strive to love God above all, and fulfill His holy will!" St. Herman of Alaska

The St. Herman Conference was founded in the 1970's to attract young people to gather in prayer and services, listening to inspiring lectures, having opportunity to gather as the Body of Christ. Since that time, each year, the youth of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad has been nurtured by countless moments of spiritual fervor and a deepening dedication to the Lord's Holy Church. Through lectures, workshops, discussions and social activities participants grow in faith and love for each other with a renewed sense of commitment to the mission of the Church and the fundamental transformation of their lives in the light of Christ.

This year's St. Herman Conference will be held in the St. John the Baptist Cathedral in Washington, DC. This year marks the 50th year of the repose of the great Wonderworker St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco. Archpriest Peter Perekrestov will deliver a lecture on this marvelous archpastor. Fr. Patrick Viscuso will also deliver a lecture on Islam. Many workshops and discussions are planned as well.
