Youth / Young Adult Ministries

Mission of our Youth Ministry Program

To cultivate a safe and welcoming environment for kids by nurturing healthy relationships within the church family. We will teach the youth by building a strong foundation of knowledge, and together, we will experience the Orthodox tradition by following the four circles of youth ministry: Liturgia (Worship), Diakonia (Service), Martyria (Witness), and Koinonia (Fellowship), leading our youth to develop, by their own free will, a personal relationship with God and to pursue union with Him.

Greek School

The mission of the Greek School Program is to teach the youth of St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church the Greek language for the purpose of creating a meaningful connection to their cultural heritage, family legacy, and the Orthodox faith.
