Metropolis-wide Youth Religious Education Program
“A Lenten Journey to Great and Holy Pascha” is an 11-week virtual youth Religious Education program sponsored by the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco Christian Education Ministry, in collaboration with the Orthodox Youth Mentorship Program of Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Camarillo, CA.
Students throughout the Metropolis from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade are encouraged to participate in this virtual program which will focus on key themes of the liturgical cycle beginning with the Triodion, continuing into Great Lent, through Holy Week and concluding with Holy Pascha. Classes will be held on Zoom every Sunday beginning February 21 from 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. PST. The last session will be held on Good Friday, April 30. A team of volunteer teachers will engage students with lessons, activities, and service projects. High school and college students will participate as mentors and activity leaders.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our youth to participate in insightful lessons, activities and service projects, all designed to enrich their Lenten journey and prepare them for the celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection,” stated His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco. “Our children deserve the best opportunities to be empowered with knowledge on their faith, and especially during these times of ongoing physical separation, this program creates an opportunity to enhance fellowship and friendships from across our Metropolis.”
There is no cost to attend, but registration is required, prior to Friday, February 5, 2021. For more information, please contact Program Coordinator Maria Tangalos. The registration deadline is Friday, February 5.
