In CHrist, We Are One!

2024 Clergy-Laity Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of American 47th Biennial Clergy-Laity Congress will be held June 30 – July 4, 2024 in San Diego, California. This gathering, focusing on the theme, “In Christ, We Are One”, provides a forum for the clergy and faithful from across our Archdiocese to come together for fellowship, spiritual enrichment, and to experience the depth of the ministries offered that positively impact our parishioners and the communities in which we worship, serve, and live.

The Opportunity

Besides the large events featured at the Clergy-Laity Congress, there are many smaller gatherings of groups that are integral to our Archdiocese, including the National Young Adult League Conference. You can choose to designate your donation to a specific area outlined below, or your donation can be designated to use in an area with the greatest need. Large or small, every gift makes a difference!

Why Your Support Is Important

The Clergy-Laity Congress relies on the generosity of our stewards to bring this gathering to fruition. Many of the items below are not covered through the Congress registration cost, therefore sponsorships are vital to the successful implementation of this important event for our Archdiocese.

Who Should Give?

Everyone! Whether or not you are a delegate to the Congress, the support of all our faithful is welcome and appreciated. We invite parishes, individuals, and organizations to offer a gift that will enhance the Congress.
