GOYA Meets Monthly

The GOYA ministry is the group for the children between the ages of 12 - 18. In addition to fellowship, which is promoted through various sports activies, such as the St. John's basketball team, as well as participation in a yearly Pan-Orthodox volleyball tournament, there is a great emphasis on giving of one’s self in service to others. To this end, the children participate in three or more community projects during the year, which may include, but are not limited to, various activities such as volunteering their time by setting up and serving food to the homeless at the Fullerton Armory, or taking Christmas gift to the children of St. Jude's Hospital.
