The Greek Orthodox Youth of America, or GOYA, is the ministry for teenagers in our community from grades eight through twelve. The mission and goal of GOYA is to lead our young people in the path of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ experiencing the Orthodox Faith. In developing a personal relationship with God, becoming active sacramental members of the Church, our young people will grow through God’s grace in the areas of worship, fellowship, witness and service. GOYA members meet regularly and participate in social, religious, athletic and philanthropic activities throughout the year. Inter-GOYA activities such as the Olympics and dances promote fellowship between the youth of neighboring Greek Orthodox communities. More information regarding meeting dates will be forthcoming. If you would like to join GOYA or would like more information please email Goya@holycrossgreekchurch.com.
