The Junior Orthodox Youth, or JOY, is a ministry to strengthen the relationships of young Orthodox Christians with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ from the 2nd-5th grades. The program works to educate and edify young members of the Church, encouraging them to become active sacramental participants in the life of the Body of Christ. This ministry offers them the opportunity to experience the Faith, ultimately leading them to Salvation.

JOY meets monthly, in addition to various family events and Sunday School. JOY meets on the second Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise specified, at a parishioners home. JOY gatherings have included an activity for all youth, a lesson and dinner! Don’t miss out!

Please contact our Youth Director, Anna Teodosiadis at if you have any questions or would like to join our mailing list. View our Church calendar for all of our current gatherings.
