The Junior Orthodox Youth, or JOY, is a ministry to Kindergarten through 5th grade children of the St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church. The mission and goal of the JOY ministry is to lead our young people into 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 young people 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 as they progress into junior high and high school.

"Feeding the Hungry"
Philoptochos is once again participating in a National Philoptochos initiative that is committed to serve 1,500,000 meals nationwide by the National Clergy Laity in July 2020. Our Philoptochos served over 27,000 meals between July 2016 and June 2018. You can help with this cause by filling the container in the Narthex. It costs $2 for a sack lunch. To become a part of this OUTREACH PROGRAM, or donate product, please contact Vicki Karagianis at 773-327-3194 or Vonnie Karafotias at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's help those in need!!
