The Junior Orthodox Youth, or JOY, is a ministry of Saint Athanasios Church. The mission of JOY is to strengthen the relationship of young Orthodox Christians with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The program works to educate and edify young members of the Church, encouraging them to become active sacramental participants in the life of the Body of Christ. This ministry offers them the opportunity to experience the Faith, ultimately leading them to Salvation.

Saint Athanasios JOY and Jr. JOY meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. with various activities and projects.
