Children’s connection to the OCHC and to their faith is a priority for the entire OCHC community. Families with children attend services regularly and are consistently actively-engaged in parish and diocesan life through four key areas: Worship, Education, Service, and Fellowship. Youth in grades PreK – 12 enjoy a variety of activities including Youth Choir, monthly Youth Sermons, Church School, Girls of the Bible group, Great Lent/Good Friday retreat, preparing lunches/food pantry service, supporting homeless youth, visiting homebound parishioners, as well as an annual hayride, ice skating party, parish picnic at the swim club, and trip to Great Adventure.
The monthly youth newsletter “CROSSWALKS” provides consistent communication with families and focuses on youth news with photos of recent events, reminders for upcoming events and tips for more consistent engagement and connection with our faith.
