The Education, Culture and Youth Diakonia Committee (ECYDC) was initially established by our Metropolitan Alexios to provide Youth Ministry experiences for our youth which bring them closer to our faith as Orthodox Christians.  For that purpose, we began a new and exciting journey in 2009.  The ECYDC is comprised of a board that together with Father Constantine Simeonidis provide oversight of all Youth and Adult Education Ministries, the volunteer teachers and advisors who work with our youth.  The board members are:

Rev. Fr. Constantine Simeonidis - Spiritual Advisor

Mrs. Dora Francis  – ECYDC Chair

Mrs. Jeana Dragash – ECYDC Past Chair

Mrs. Anna Bolaris - Secretary

Mrs. Eve Montero - Treasurer

Mrs. Georgette Khoury - Member

Dr. Sophia Cordoba - Member

Mrs. Pamela Filutowski - Member

Dr. Andy Tringas - Member

Mr. Alex Vastardis - Member

Educational, Cultural, Youth Ministries

The ECYDC and the youth program leaders embarked on a new approach to the content and delivery of the Youth Ministries.  The format and content of our youth programs were revised to bring new energy to the programs with more contemporary themes and integration of the various ministries. The programs usually meet on Sundays following Divine Liturgy. We keep striving to improve our Youth and Adult Education Ministries at all times.
