Patron Saint Troparion
Saint John Orthodox Church

The memory of the righteous is celebrated with songs of praise, but the Lord's testimony is sufficient for thee, O Forerunner. Thou wast shown indeed to be the most honorable of the prophets, for in the waters thou didst baptize him who had been proclaimed. After suffering in behalf of the truth, thou didst proclaim even to those in Hades the God who appeared in the flesh, who takes away the sin of the world and grants us the Great Mercy.

Teen SOYO


Teen SOYO (Society of Orthodox Youth Organizations) was founded by His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph. For decades Teen SOYO has sought to encourage young people to love Christ, His Church, and to seek His truth. It is a goal of Teen SOYO to inspire teens to live a righteous life, seeking to discover that which God has graven in their hearts and minds. Teens are spurred on to serve those in the Church, as well as their neighbors both near and far that are in need of Christ’s love and mercy. For over Four Decades since its establishment, Teen SOYO has evolved to become a formidable Youth Organization of the Archdiocese, participating locally in each church and diocese, as well as on the National Archdiocese level in such contests as the Bible Bowl, Oratorical, and Festivals Creative Arts.

Starting Teen SOYO was one of the first and most important things I did after becoming Metropolitan. The importance of providing programs for our youth and keeping them close to the Church is essential. This is especially true in this modern era. What started as a small movement has grown into an Archdiocese wide force providing humanitarian services to the poor and needy as well as bringing the youth of our parishes together on the local, regional, and archdiocese levels. May God continue to bless our youth and may we always encourage them to do what is good and pleasing to God.”
