The Northeast American Diocese Family and Youth Conference was held on Wednesday, July 6th and ended Saturday, July 9, 2011 at the Hudson Valley Resort & Spa, in Kerhonkson, NY.

There were over 450 participants at this year’s conference. Several different sessions were held for adults, Focus, MGOCSM, and children. There were also super sessions. Super Sessions were sessions that spoke on various topics. For instance, Wealth Management’s main speaker was His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, Metropolitan of the NE American Diocese. Other speakers were Very Rev. Fr. Idayanal, Rev. Fr. George Koshy, and Rev. Fr. Andrew Daniel.

The Family and Youth Conference committee worked tirelessly. The Conference coordinator was Rev. Fr. M.K. Kuriakose, General Secretary, Ms. Asha Thomas, and Treasurer, Mr. Paul Mathai. As participants drove up the beautiful and serene mountain, they drove home with having a mountain-top experience.
