Youth Group

Our Youth Group is open to any youth, 8th grade through high school (though we encourage our young adults who are a few years post high school to still participate!) to share once a month in a time of fellowship.  We typically have a time of spiritual discussion ranging from topics such as struggling to cultivate the virtues, the value of monastic pilgrimages, cultivating a life of prayer and silence, dating, or communication in relationships.  Our discussions are followed by a meal or light snacks and a social time together. 

In between our once a month gatherings, we occasionally gather for a community service project or an outdoor activity.  We also encourage the youth to participate in all Church events such as: work days, providing a meal at the local homeless shelter, spiritual talks, and workshops by the Priest or visiting clergy.  In Central Washington, there is a pan-Orthodox youth retreat monthly called Fellowship of the Cross in which we encourage participation by our Youth, ages 17-25.  As often as possible we have a small group from our Parish drive to participate in these larger, inspirational Youth gatherings to cultivate their faith and meet other young adults outside of our Parish.  Our Youth Group is led by Fr Daniel and Mat. Anastasia, with Vince and Margaret Stoyas playing a significant role in supporting our high school age youth through smaller discussion groups and social events.

“By Divine Providence, the diaspora emerged in order that the light of Orthodoxy would shine throughout the world.” — St John of Shanghai and San Francisco.

Sixty years ago, Saint John shepherded his flock of Russian refugees in the Philippines. Now a Russian Orthodox mission is working to share the fullness of the Faith.

Fr. Silouan, the priest at the mission, was a member of St. Silouan Orthodox Church before accepting the call to serve the people of the Philippines.
