JOY is the Junior Orthodox Youth of Saint Sophia Cathedral. Its mission is to lead our young people into experiencing the Holy Orthodox Faith through worship, fellowship, service and witness. All children, ages 8 – 12, who attend Saint Sophia Sunday School are members of JOY. To enroll in the Sunday School program, please contact the Cathedral office at 202-333-4730 or download the Sunday School registration form.
The organization is guided by a committee of parents who plan and coordinate various activities for the children. The committee is supervised by one of the Cathedral’s priests and one advisor. The Sunday School registration roster serves as the basis for inclusion.
Our group of children attend a variety of fun events held every year, including our pumpkin decorating, Christmas cookie/ornament decorating, Lenten activity and much more. To instill the love of giving back to the community, children are encouraged to participate in a community service project. Past events included making IOCC kits, food drive and preparing food for homeless.
