ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ ΟΡΘΟΔΟΞΟΣ ΚΟΙΝΟΤΗΣ ΑΓΙΟΥ ΑΝΤΩΝΙΟΥ

HOMEWelcome.html
The Greek Orthodox Youth of America (GOYA) of the Church of Saint Anthony was established in 1998 under the advisement of Sinthia Obelenus. Soon after, Mary Calakos Kaskabas took over as advisor from 2000-2004. Steven Calakos and Niki Kaskabas became advisors in 2004 and have remained the current advisors. Over the years, our GOYA has increasingly grown. Many of our children who are older and have graduated from GOYA have come back as mentors to help and support the GOYA of Saint Anthony. Every year, Saint Anthony's GOYA adds new events and fundraisers to their agenda. We have participated in Vineland's annual Holiday Parade, DVYC Lock-In's, Missions Walk in Ocean City, NJ, and Sights & Sounds to name a few.  It is exciting and gratifying to witness the camaraderie between members of our GOYA, as well as, members from neighboring churches in the Delaware Valley.
