Metropolis of New Jersey Hosts 2024 Sights and Sounds Festival

On Saturday, March 2, 2024, His Eminence Metropolitan Apostolos of New Jersey visited the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Westfield, New Jersey for the Community's Annual GOYA Sights and Sounds program, which brought together over 450 GOYAns from throughout the region to showcase their artistic and musical talents. Throughout the day the GOYAns offered beautiful performances in singing, Greek Folk Dancing, Greek and English plays, and with their musical instruments.

In the evening all of the GOYAns with their advisors participated in the Great Hierarchical Vespers Services celebrated by Metropolitan Apostolos. At the conclusion His Eminence congratulated the GOYAns for their tremendous works and accomplishments and impressed upon them the importance of staying close to their faith, close to God, and to always be thankful for the many gifts and talents that He has bestowed upon us.

Following the Vespers all the participants gathered in the parish hall, the "Bouras Center" as the top GOYAns in each of the categories received recognition and a trophy for their wonderful accomplishment. In the overall rankings for the program, St. Nicholas in Wyckoff, NJ were announced as the 2024 Sights and Sounds winners.
