In the late evening of July 3rd, as all the churches gathered together for the first time at Mar Abraham Church, unforunately, a sand storm hit. Nevertheless, the youth continued to have a blast and enjoy their meal in the hall of the church. Mar Sarhad Y. Jammo said some words in the chaos to calm everyone down as well as bring up their spirits as they are about to embark on a spiritual journey with the entirety of the Chaldean Catholic Diocese of St. Peter the Apostle’s youth.
The youth of Arizona welcomed the churches into their parish with a very warm welcome. They all applauded and were very friendly with the youth. Fr. Felix and Fr. Hermiz saw to it that every church was taken care of to the maxium.
