YOKE Youth Group

YOKE is for young people aged 18 – 30 years of age.  We have talks about once a month on a Sunday evening, in the hall of our Church at St Ioannis, Parramatta. 

Our next talk will be on Sunday 20 February from 6pm.  It will be given by Fr Asteri, the Parish Priest of St Raphael in Liverpool, his topic will be “Changed by illness”.  After the talk there will be a dinner in our hall.  Please RSVP on https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/changed-by-illness-tickets-261563412207


“YOKE” stands for Young Orthodox striving to Know the Eternal. We liked it as a logo because as Christians we need one another, we need support from others who  love God, so the image of oxen yoked together appeals to us. We also resonated with the words of Christ: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”  (Mat. 11:28-30)
