Koinonia Men's Ministry


Ascension's "Koinonia" Men's Ministry group brings Greek Orthodox Christian stewards of the Ascension of Our Lord (25 years of age and older) closer together through Orthodox Christian fellowship, and educational, social and philanthropic ministries.  The group is currently 35 members strong, and continues to grow.  Koinonia Men's Ministry typically meets every other month and among other activities, has planned, hosted and sponsored Ascension's annual golf outing, spearheads the Parish Family Picnic; hosts a dinner during Lent; and, manages the Easter greeting card.
