Thank you for welcoming me into your community. It is so wonderful to see and experience a parish that is so full of excitement, love and warmth.
In the last few weeks, I have already had a chance to be a part of the JOY meeting, the GOYA meeting, and the preparation of the Father’s Day gift.
These events have given me a glimpse of how close the community already is.
Through this, I have been able to see an appreciation of the church and an appreciation for our faith.
I graduated about a month ago from Hellenic College in Boston with a major in Human Development and a minor in Religious Studies, where I loved learning about the Orthodox faith as well as what makes each person unique and specifically unique to their faith.
Please feel free to come talk to me at church or visit the Church Office where I would love to hear your ideas for our youth ministry, I can learn about your families as well as your involvement within the church.
I realize that the youth director position is new to this parish. Thank you for your willingness to support this and our youth ministries.
I am excited to work together with all of you to grow these ministries and to just get started! I pray that we remember our faith as we work together to develop our youth program. I also pray that our faith is strengthened as we grow together.
