Hellenic Orthodox Primary Education

The HOPE is the ministry to Kindergarten through second grade children of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Since HOPE is a ministry, the orientation and implementation of the program should reflect the Orthodox Christian Faith, Tradition and Life. This will be done at a level that our little ones can relate to, using manipulatives, music, games and crafts.

The mission and goal of the HOPE ministry is to lead our children in to experiencing the Holy Orthodox Faith. By developing a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and becoming active sacramental members of the living church, our children will be equipped with tools necessary to assist them in their journey toward salvation. By laying a foundation of faith at this age, the young people will have something that will guide and strengthen them through life.

Junior Orthodox Youth

JOY is the ministry to 3rd through 6th grade children of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.

The JOY ministry intends to continue to direct our young people by expanding their experiences of their Holy Orthodox Faith. By introducing them to concepts of service through projects like the Have-A-Heart Luncheon, children begin to develop an appreciation of their duty toward philanthropy.
