"We are not only the future of the church,

but we are also the present!" 



This is the motto of the youth in our diocese, and should be the motto for all Orthodox Christian youth around the globe. 


Our leadership team recognizes that we live in a fast-paced world that places competing demands on everyone, especially our youth.  Perhaps now more than ever, it is critical to involve our children and teens in the life of the Church, and to create activities that will make them feel excited about their Faith! 


Check out the "Upcoming Events" tab.  Please explore these opportunities and plan to attend!  Invite your friends!  All of our activities are designed based on the feedback our leadership team receives from program participants.  We look forward to seeing you! 


If you have any questions, please contact a member of our leadership team.

To be put on an email list to be kept up to date on future youth activities, please submit your information here.
