Orthodox Ministries:

It is critical and imperative for our families to be involved in Orthodox faith building activities and ministries as well as developing and growing our Orthodox friendships and peer circles. In addition to your Parish’s Church school programs, below you will find age appropriate ministries and faith building enrichment opportunities created and established for our children and families that exist at the Parish and Metropolis levels. Some of these ministries include the Archdiocese level as well. Ensure that your family’s extra-curricular activities begin first and foremost in the Church.
