Teen SOYO (Society of Orthodox Youth Organizations) is the youth movement of the Antiochian Archdiocese of North America founded by his Eminence Metropolitan Philip of Thrice Blessed Memory.
Teen SOYO inspires youth to love Christ, His Church, and to seek His Truth and Life. SOYO helps teens seeking to live a righteous life, seeking to discover that which God has graven in their hearts and minds.
Metropolitan JOSEPH recently wrote concerning our youth:
A priority dear to my heart is our youth. I want to keep them in the faith and sustain their spiritual lives. They need our attention and prayers, as well as our sacrifices for this task... In the future, our investment in our youth will bring forth spiritual leaders, good fathers and mothers, good citizens and Orthodox Christians able to share our faith with America and our children.
At St. Ignatius, SOYO organizes activities for teens, like SOYO vespers, game nights, projects to serve our parish, and community service projects.
