This Month our GOYAn’s learned about Chrismation! We learned that we receive the Holy Spirit and we have a personal pentecost. They also learned that the Chrism is made by the Patriarch once every 10 years and is distributed to all of the parishes in the world and used in every chrismation.
This past weekend, our GOYAns enjoyed their Annual Paintball Outing at Paintball Explosion in East Dundee. It was a beautiful day, filled with much fun and fellowship.
This month for our Jr./Sr. GOYA Outing, we were supposed to go ice skating. Unfortunately, the cold left us out of the rink but luckily we got to have an awesome day at church! We started the day with some lunch, then went upstairs to the gym to play bubble soccer.

Junior GOYA had a Junior GOYA Funday, where all of the Jr. GOYAn’s get togeteher, play a couple epic games of Hide & Go Seek, hit the gym and play some dodgeball, eat some pizza and relax with some s’mores and gaga ball! What a way to spend our Friday night together in fellowship!
This past Sunday, our 4th grade Church School students each received an Orthodox Study Bible at the close of liturgy. We pray their lives, like their church school curriculum will be centered around Christ and his word.
