JOY: Junior Orthodox Youth
JOY is the Junior Orthodox Youth of St. Luke’s Greek Orthodox Church. It is the ministry to 3rd through 6th-grade children of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The mission and goal of the Joy ministry are to lead our young people onto experiencing the Orthodox Christian Faith through Worship, Fellowship, Service, and Witness.
All children who are between the ages of 8-12 are welcome to join.
It is our honor to be the advisors for JOY this year. Under Father Christ’s guidance, we have planned a calendar of activities that reinforce positive teachings and traditions of the Orthodox Church. Activities are structured to bring together our children in a spirit of love and admiration.
JOY is encouraged to give back to their community with various fundraisers throughout the year.
