PARISH YOUTH CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS BY BRINGING JOY TO OTHERS!

In December, 2008 and again in January, 2009, the Junior Youth Group of St. George Parish brought Christmas joy to the Ukrainian residents at Hillsdale Care Centre. Residents and youth, along with senior parish volunteers, gathered in the Hillsdale chapel for a Christmas Divine Liturgy. Following the Liturgy, the youth sang Ukrainian Christmas carols and helped to serve traditional baked goods and coffee.

The youth also carolled in the homes of a number of elderly shut-in members of the parish.

Concerned about the growing number of hungry people in the city of Oshawa, the youth conducted a winter-long FOOD DRIVE at the parish.  All contributions were turned over to Simcoe Hall Settlement House for distribution to the needy.

Our parish youth gather on Friday nights in the basement level of the church. They even have their own "pad", a large room furnished with an old ping-pong table and a television set.  Here the youth hang out and plan their strategies. You might find them making chocolates to sell at the annual church bazaar or planning what to serve with coffee after Divine Liturgy on Youth Sunday.

Below, youth prepare a backdrop for the children's nativity play, "The Glory of Bethlehem".
