2014 Odyssey Festival

Labor Day Weekend

For 34 years, the members of our Parish have had the distinct pleasure of welcoming you into our spiritual home and sharing with you the sights, sounds and tastes of our Hellenic traditions. We take great care in the preparations of each meal and pastry dish, using only the finest of ingredients to ensure that each item on our menu is prepared to simple perfection. Feel free to attend one of the lectures in our Church proper, participate in our cooking demonstrations, or simply walk around and enjoy the panoramic views of our beautiful grounds. Enjoy the pantheon of culinary delights, dance to the rhythmic beats of our Greekmusic and allow yourself to ‘travel’ to Greece and experience its beauty here in Orange, Connecticut.

GOYA Day at Holiday Hill

The Saint Barbara GOYA will host its Eighth Annual Direct Archdiocesan District wide event at Holiday Hill in Prospect, Connecticut on September 20, 2014.  GOYAns will have the opportunity to participate in events such as a hoopla-hoop contest, a pie-eating contest, an egg-toss, mini-golf, tennis, volleyball, basketball, softball and soccer.  They also have the oppotunity of taking a canoe, a paddle boat or a rowboat tour of the lake and enjoy a simple swim or dive into one of the two heated swimming pools.

A day with all these activities requires a lot of energy and there is plenty of food available for the teens to refuel and continue enjoying the day, beginning with a buffet that is available throughout the day, offering a soup bar, salad bar, taco bar, burgers and fries. Sprinkle in the cotton candy, fresh popped popcorn and Good Humor ice cream and you have a recipe for a delightful day and a wonderful kick-off for the Direct Archdiocesan District GOYA Ecclesiastical Year Calendar! Join us for a fun-filled day of fellowship.

Young Adult Conference

October 10-12, 2014

The Young Adults of Saint Barbara Church are honored to host the 3rd Annual Direct Archdiocesan District Young Adult Conference on October 10-12, 2014. The theme of the Conference is “Discipline and Distraction:  How to Deal with the Distraction in Our Own Lives.”   The theme and focus comes directly from our Parish Young Adult Steering Committee, and reflects their desire to gain a better understanding of their role as Young Professional Orthodox Christians in this world, disciplined in things ‘other worldly’ and distracted by things ‘worldly.’    Join us for a wonderful weekend of activities and fellowship.  More information to follow.
