The Parish Council is a lay body of parish-selected members to administer the affairs and activities of St. Gregory’s in a symbiotic, cooperative relationship with the priest.
St. Anastasia Philoptochos
“Philoptochos”, meaning “friend of the poor”, aptly describes this multi-faceted organization. Our philanthropy extends not only to families in need, sick and elderly, but to programs and institutions in our communities, local and abroad.
Adult Education classes occur each Sunday, immediately following Holy Communion and last approximately 45 minutes. Sessions typically combine interactive and thought provoking discussions. Whether an exploration of Saints, upcoming feast days, or topical events, this conversation is to strengthen the understanding of what it means to be an Orthodox Christian in modern America.
Catechetical School (Sunday School)
Our Church School teaches the children about their Orthodox Christian faith. They learn through class discussions and activities. There are times we gather together to learn hymns and preform skits. Children ages 3 to 18 are encouraged to participate in these weekly classes, which meet following Holy Communion and last for approximately 45 minutes.
GOYA (Greek Orthodox Youth Association)
GOYA is our youth organization that brings together grades 7 through 12 for fellowship, social projects, fun outings, retreats and assisting the community.
JOY (Junior Orthodox Youth)
JOY is our youth organization that incorporates catechism and fun for grades 1 through 6.
The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America in conjunction with the Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting developed a program to provide a religious base and framework for our Orthodox youth members. The purpose of this program is to help the child be more aware of God’s presence in his or her daily life, especially through things we do in our home and in our church. All active Scouts are eligible to take part in this program and upon completion will be recognized for their efforts on Scout Sunday.
The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
