JOY is a youth ministry for the third through seventh graders of our church. JOY meets every other Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. The children participate in various programs guided to create fellowship by participating in fun activities such as sports, movies, Greek Dancing, etc. We also conduct Lenten workshops. One of our Priests speaks with the children about our Church and has a question and answer session with them regularly. The children of JOY also do charitable works, fundraising and giving of themselves by acts of kindness to those in need – homeless program, Life Center, our Church, IOCC, Ronald McDonald House, etc. We currently have a boys and girls Soccer and Basketball team. The children of JOY also get to participate in the Junior Olympics at the end of the year.
