G.O.Y.A is the Ascension of Our Lord's high school youth group. The primary focus of our youth group is to educate our young about our Greek Orthodox Christian Faith and learn to incorporate those teachings into their daily lives.  Through discussions and Diakonia (Service) Projects they learn "how" to live our Greek Orthodox Faith.  In spending time together through Koinonia (fellowship) they learn of the JOY of Christ within each other! GOYA meets weekly on Monday evening from 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. as per our September to May schedule.  The theme of the 2017/18 Ecclesiastical year is "Finding God in Everything, Every Day." If you are in High School please come and join us!

MEETS:  Mondays, 7:30-9 pm.  The 2017/18 theme is "Finding God in Everything, Every Day."  All meetings will be held at the home just south of the Church, 1231 Riverwoods Rd., rented by Ascension during the construction project, unless a different location is specified in the calendar.  Please join us for inspiring conversations, philanthropic projects and a lot of fun!
