Summer Youth Program at Holy Trinity Monastery
Summer Youth Program at Holy Trinity Monastery

The Summer Youth Program is in its second week at Holy Trinity Monastery. This year fifteen young men have enrolled in the program. The daily program starts at 6:00 AM with the Divine Liturgy followed by breakfast, rest and a 9:00 AM meeting where different topics are discussed each day. Later in the morning there are assigned work duties for one and one half hours. Likewise after lunch the boys work for another one or two hours as assigned or needed.The afternoons and evenings are filled with various activities including field trips. Each day ends with prayer. It is important to note that during the entire three week program neither mobile phones nor the internet are allowed to be used. This gives the boys an opportunity to experience a period of time without the usual daily distractions found in the world. This helps them to relate to each other better forming stronger social bonds. With the Grace of God one  former Summer Youth Program boy is now a  seminarian and  another one is  a novice. Many clergy  of the Russian Church drew closer to God with their experience as Summer Boys in Jordanville. Many others have formed pious families with the good influence they received at the Summer Youth Program.
