In the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit; One God, Amen.

OUR MISSION

To create a foundation for children growing up in the Eritrean Orthodox Tewahdo Churches of the U.S. & Canada.

 

To bridge the gap between youth and the church by ministering the word of God in the diaspora through conferences, seminars and retreats.

 

To develop resources such as an improved curriculum and translated materials that encompass the dogma and canons of our church.

 

To use diverse social media platforms to ameliorate the understanding of all the current, and future church faithful in the English language.

LOGC

The goal of this program is to create conferences for youth that will allow them to participate in various activities, have fellowship with youth like themselves, and begin to grow in their understanding of the faith.

Resources

This committee gathers resources like holy books, and scriptures, and transliterates and translates them to be accessible for English speakers. From Divine Liturgy books, and powerpoints to prayers books like Widasie Maryam.

YOAP

This program gathers ambassadors from each church in the diocese to be a bridge between the youth at their parish and EROTM. Members are engaged with monthly meetings to learn about service and fellowship and share EROTM resources and events with their churches.

Curriculum

This department's goals are to create and improve classroom tools that align with the teachings and goals of our faith for all churches in the diocese to use.
