Some notable recommendations from the Youth Sobor were:
• PROMOTE YOUNG COMPOSERS TO UTILIZE THEIR TALENTS TO COMPOSE NEW LITURGICAL MUSIC THAT MAY REFLECT THE CURRENT TIMES
• NOT ONLY ENCOURAGE YOUTH TO ATTEND OUR CAMPING PROGRAMS, BUT HELP IN ALL WAYS TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR THEM TO ATTEND (FINANCIAL, TRAVEL, ETC.
• CONNECT PARISHIONERS THROUGH A “PRAYER BUDDIES” PROGRAM – (PRAY FOR AN ANONYMOUS [OR NOT ANONYMOUS] PERSON, OR PRAY WITH THEM, KEEP IN CONTACT WITH THEM AND PRAY WITH THEM)
• PARTICIPATE in the Jr. Ukrainian Orthodox League and if your parish does not have one, investigate the possibility of starting one. The Jr. UOL helps teenagers learn skills that will aid them in being leaders and this will ultimately benefit the church. For more information on starting the Jr. UOL, contact the Jr. UOL president at www.uol.orthodoxws.com
The Youth Sobor is coordinated by the Consistory Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministry. The main objectives of this program are to provide our teenagers with a better understanding of the workings of the national church, promote and foster leadership with the church and provide a voice for our youth with the church.
