Name Days

 

GOYA (Michelle Hatzizacharias and Silvenna Karantenislis, Advisors):Young Parishioners (ages 13-18) are invited to participate in the spiritual, social, athletic and philanthropic events of this organization. They meet the first Thursday of every month and they have their President, Executive Board and members comprised exclusively by the youth. Parents (the Advisor, the coaches, the members of the youth committee) monitor the growth of the organization together with the Parish Priest and they provide the necessary resources for all their events. Highlights of the group include visits to Ronald McDonald House, hospitals, elderly homes and assisting charities, as well as the following social and athletic events: Fridays at Friday's, dances, fundraising events, Ski trips, helping at the Festival, talents shows, Olympics, Volleyball and Basketball, retreats, Lenten dinner, attending the Pre-sanctified evening services and a pioneering program of tutoring younger students (in School subjects, Greek or music) to increase participation in the organization events and to help worthy causes. The Volleyball teams start practices on October and they meet every Wednesday at Charerton School (coaches are Nikos Poulikidis, Vassilis Zarboutis and Georgia Golding).

GOYA ELECTIONS

The GOYA are scheduled for the end of the year pool party; an amazing evening of fun and fellowship always follows. We wish every blessing to the new GOYA board, which will be officially inaugurated and announced in Church as they assume their responsibilities for the New Ecclesiastical Year. Many fun events and spiritually edifying programs will be offered to the Youth and please, stay connected to receive all news and updates from our Church GOYA.

The Youth of Saint Demetrios Church are outstanding volunteers and gifted members of the Parish.

There is no doubt in our mind that the only way forward is through the concerted effort of our younger generations. ... ultimately, it is you that will oblige us to assume responsibility for the way we treat the earth and its resources.

The Church

The Greek Orthodox Community of Saint Demetrios in Merrick, New York was founded in 1961. On December 1959, under the guidance of the late James (Demetrios) Boulukos a meeting took place with the intention to establish a parish in the South Shore of Long Island.
