Youth & Education

We value our youth, and consider their education and healthy fellowship to be a top priority. From the little ones (age 3) on up to our college students and young adults, we are committed to providing them a home within their Father's house in more ways than one. Our education ministries incorporate community building on the parish level, pan-Orthodox unity, and cross-generational experiences that knit us all together. These ministries include the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd; Fire on Father; Teen SOYO; and Orthodox Christian Fellowship, as well as small groups for our high school girls and high school boys. As we continue to build our website, more information on our various ministries will be available. We invite you visit us in Goleta, and learn more about how we integrate all the members of our parish into an active life in the Church.
