We welcome you to learn about and consider joining some of our parish ministries. There are many great ways to get involved. Contact the Church office for further details.
The Parish Council is composed of faithful men and women who are dedicated Orthodox Christians and who sacrifice their time, talents, and resources for the Church. We represent the parish, as clergy and laity together, and seek to fulfill the mission ascribed to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Parish Council oversees all operations of the church and the parish community under the guidance of the priest.
Parish Council: George Lountos (President), Elizabeth A. Kostas-Polston (Vice President), Denise Beauclair (Treasurer), Eleni Trivizas (Secretary), Raymond Beck, Kiriaki Kontos, Gregory Nerantzis.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, altar servers assist the higher clergy during services. They might carry the cross, candles or liturgical fans in processions and entrances. The role of an altar server is an integral part of our services.

Youth Ministry (Hope/Joy & GOYA)
We believe that the Goal of Orthodox Christian Youth Ministry is the integration of each young person fully into the total life of the Church. We believe that Orthodox Christians must commit themselves to living the Orthodox Faith daily. Worship, Witness, Service and Fellowship are the natural expressions of that commitment. Our Hope/Joy & GOYA Ministries are grounded in these beliefs. Our curriculum is centered on providing a spiritual foundation for our youth with activities meant to foster fundamental Christian values and beliefs.
Hope/Joy: Mrs. Jennifer Ferentinos (Coordinator). Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
GOYA: Christina Summers (Coordinator). Email: Mrs.Summers@aol.com
