The Hellenic Orthodox Primary Enrichment (“HOPE”) ages 4-7 years and the Junior Orthodox Youth (“JOY”) ages 8-12 years were created with the goal of gathering children and families in activities which promote Orthodox Christian fellowship. HOPE and JOY enrich our youth with religious and social activities, community service and Orthodox outreach trips in concert with other Church organizations. For more information please contact: hopejoy@archangelmichaelchurch.org.

Program Highlights

We are proud to be one of the largest HOPE and JOY groups in Long Island and in the Tri-State area with approximately 200 children and growing.

Our HOPE and JOY group offers many events for our children, including service opportunities, retreats, athletics, and activities for children.

We conduct mini-workshops and retreats around church holidays and feasts, led by our clergy. We also offer service activities for our youth, including outreach initiatives like "Feed the Hungry." Several times each year, our youth gather to make sandwiches for the INN (Interfaith Nutrition NEtwork), collect donations and deliver them to the INN in Hempstead. We have also organized volunteer service days in tandem with our Ladies' Philoptochos, our national philanthropy organization, as well as other church organizations. We also offer many opportunities for fellowship, including holiday parties and our fabulous Christmas party.

We also have a vibrant and successful Athletics program providing children with the opportunity to learn, play and compete in organized basketball and soccer leagues, and the JOY Olympics (every Memorial Day Weekend). Click here for more information.
