GAIA Theatre Group

CALLING ALL ACTORS….Come join our new youth ministry, GAIA Theatre Group coming this October to Archangel Michael Church. The program will run from October 2016-June 2017 with 2 performances at the end of the year. The play will be in Greek and the children will enhance their language skills, be taught to act on stage by two very talented theatre individuals, gain confidence, and have a terrific time with their peers.

There is a limited space availability just 20 spots so please register this June to hold your spot for the Fall. Should we not receive enough participation from our community by June 30, we will reach out to the surrounding parishes and their Greek School programs.

We offer instructional basketball clinics on Saturday mornings to teach and reinforce fundamentals of the game. All players of all skill levels are invited and encouraged to attend. Click here for the Church Calendar and come play!

We offer competitive basketball in leagues sponsored by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America for HOPE, JOY and GOYA-aged athletes. Registration begins in September with practices and team assignments, and league play begins in December, culminating with playoff and championship games in the spring

Our youth participate in the spirit of healthy competition and Orthodox sportsmanship and learn from our dedicated volunteer coaches. Last year, nearly 200 players and 15 teams participated in our basketball programs, and we look forward to welcoming even more this year!
