Hope & Joy


Boys and girls between the ages of 4-7 are invited to join H.O.P.E., and ages 8-11 for J.O.Y.  These programs give the children the opportunity to learn about their faith, their church and the social world around them.  Meetings are held once a month on Fridays.

Dear St. Athanasios Families,

Thank you to all the families that have been involved with our H.O.P.E./J.O.Y. program these past few months! Our children have been busy with activities that have included: making a “Thanks Jar” for Thanksgiving and buying, wrapping & donating gifts towards a family within our Community for Christmas.

Activities quickly approaching include our Basketball & Volleyball Camp, Marti Bracelet Making & Lenten Picnic, a Lenten Retreat in conjunction with our Sunday School program and so much more!  All activities center around the children learning about their faith, their Church & the world around them.

These activities wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful H.O.P.E./J.O.Y. families and without generous contributions, volunteers, Father & our Church community…thank you!

Please follow our private Facebook page: St. Athanasios H.O.P.E./J.O.Y for additional event information & pictures.

Please contact Ellainy, at grkkukli@yahoo.com or Melanie with any questions or suggestions that you may have regarding our events and/or if you are interested in volunteering.

We hope to see you & your family at future activities!
