International Youth Festival 2015

This year gathering will be held around the theme:

Attaining Conciliarity

"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst." (Mat 18,20)

A theme at the core of the mission of Syndesmos : Conciliarity and Unity. The Holy and Great Synod of the Orthodox Church to be held in Constantinople in 2016 reminds us of the importance of this theme for the whole Church.

The event will take place from 25th to 30th August. On 29th and 30th August participants are invited to the 35th anniversary of the Fellowship of Orthodox youth in Poland.

The International Youth Festival is open to Christian youth from all countries.
The programme consists in conferences, discussions, prayer as well as informal times like an intercultural evening.
Participants from various countries will have the opportunity to experience the unity of the Church, sharing their faith and the joy of being together.
