The St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival was created by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Department of Religious Education in 1983 to provide junior and senior high school students an opportunity to research and to prepare a short speech on one of a predetermined set of topics.
There are parish, district, and Metropolis Festivals, culminating in the Archdiocese Festival.
Our youth are encouraged to participate in the festival. Over the years our youth have done very well at all levels. More information is provided through Sunday School and via our communications.
