About our Ministries

The format and content of our youth programs were revised to bring new energy to the programs with more contemporary themes and integration of the various ministries. The programs meet on Sundays following Divine Liturgy and throughout the week. We strive to improve our Youth Ministries at all times and the increase in student attendance is evidence that our new approaches are working. We invite you to check out the links below for specific information pertaining to each Ministry.

  • Sunday School

    By attending Sunday School, our youth will grow in their love for and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
