Junior Orthodox Youth (J.O.Y.)
We do meet once a month, from 12:30-2:00 pm. We begin each class with a prayer followed by an appreciated and fabulous lunch which is provided by one of our parents. Full attention then will be focused on Rev. Father Nick as he teaches us about the parable of the month. A related project will take place after our lesson with Rev. Father Nick.
It is important to keep in mind that the single greatest influence on how a child develops a “sense of self” is their parents. Youth ministry needs to begin early, even before the child begins to participate in J.O.Y. Ministry. It begins with the family in the home, and it needs to continue in the home as the child grows in the Church.
Your child must be registered to participate. Click here to print the registration form. Download the Archdiocese J.O.Y. Guidelines.
