Youth Groups at St. Spyridon

HOPE (Holy Orthodox Primary Education)

HOPE is a Youth Group for children TK – 2nd grade. By developing a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at a young age, our children will be equipped with tools necessary for their journey toward salvation. We meet once per month around the community for fun activities.

JOY (Junior Orthodox Youth)

JOY is a Youth Group for children in 3rd – 6th grades. We hope to lay a foundation of faith and Holy Orthodoxy to guide and strengthen our children in all areas of their lives.

GOYA (Greek Orthodox Youth Association)

GOYA is a Youth Group for 7th– 12th grade. GOYA meets once per month to fellowship and build relationships through our Holy Orthodox Faith. GOYA emphasizes four main principles:

  • Worship (Liturgia)
  • Fellowship (Koinonia)
  • Service (Diakonia)
  • Witness (Martyria)

Our activities will focus on those principles as Holy Orthodoxy brings us together.
