The HOPE (Hellenic Orthodox Primary Education) is the ministry to Kindergarten through 2nd grade children of the Greek Orthodox
Archdiocese of America. Since HOPE is a ministry, the orientation and implementation of the program should reflect the Orthodox
Christian Faith, Tradition and Life. The mission and goal of the HOPE ministry is to lead our children in to experiencing the
Holy Orthodox Faith. By developing a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and becoming active
sacramental members of the living church, our children will be equipped with tools necessary to assist them in their journey
toward salvation. By laying a foundation of faith at this age, the young people will have something that will guide and
strengthen them through life.
