GOYA is the Ascension of Our Lord's high school youth group! 

The primary focus of this ministry is to educate our youth about our Greek Orthodox Christian Faith and learn to incorporate those teachings into their daily lives.  Through discussions and Diakonia (Service) projects, they learn "how" to live our Greek Orthodox Faith.  In spending time together through Koinonia (fellowship) they find the joy of Christ within each other! 

GOYA meets weekly on Monday evening from 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. from September through May.  The theme of the 2019/20 Ecclesiastical year is:  Becoming Human by Finding Christ!  Click HERE for this year's calendar. 

If you are in High School please come and join us for inspiring conversations, philanthropic projects and a lot of fun!

Our Faith

The Church
The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
