HOPE (Hellenic Orthodox Primary Education) is the ministry for grades K-2 while JOY (Junior Orthodox Youth) is the ministry for grades 3-6 for children of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.The mission and goal of the HOPE/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.
