HOPE (Holy Orthodox Primary Education) and JOY (Junior Orthodox Youth) ministers to children in our community from Kindergarten through 5th grade. The mission and goal is to lead children together in becoming active sacramental members of the living Church and developing a relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Throughout all the activities, the youth will be given the opportunity to express their faith and enjoy fellowship with other young people in their age group. By laying the foundation at these ages, they will have the foundation to guide them through their teen years.

Such activities for HOPE and JOY include:

  •  Camp Good Shepherd
  •  Vacation Church Camp
  •  Holy Friday Retreat
  •  Christmas Caroling & Nursing Home Visitations
  •  Walk for Mission
  •  Friday Fun Nights
  •  Make a Difference Night
  •  Great Kidmission
  •  Costume Party
  •  Bowling Party
  •  Christmas Retreat & Breakfast with Santa
  •  Saturday of Lazarus Retreat & Palm Folding
  •  Monthly PB&J Nights (350 sandwiches for Sister Jean’s Kitchen)
