About Our Youth Ministry

Find out more about our programs and events here!

Saint Demetrios Cathedral of Astoria is committed to the youth and the families of our community as they are an important and integral part of our parish. The Youth Ministry Program seeks to foster worship, fellowship, witness and service facilitating growth in the Faith.

Under the spiritual direction of Father Nektarios Papzafiropoulos and fellow clergy, with guidance from talented, dedicated volunteers and teachers, the youth of Saint Demetrios are given many opportunities that meet both their spiritual and social needs through the Church. Through various activities the youth can explore, think, and express their faith in a loving and safe environment.

We offer opportunities to empower young people to live as disciples of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ in the world today. We want them to participate in the life, mission, and work of the Church, and want to foster the personal and spiritual growth of all the youth.

We invite you to read through our page and discover all the ways that each and every young person and families can be involved!
