Some of the Ministries of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church...


The Ladies' Philoptochos Society has at its core a desire to help out those in need.  The Philoptochos meets at least quarterly after the Sunday Divine Liturgy.  The Philoptochos assists many local charities along with many Orthodox Christian charities around the country and world!

Young Adult Ministry

The Young Adult Ministry is an opportunity for young adults (20's and 30's) to gather together for fellowship, discussion, and service.  The Young Adult Ministry usually meets once a month at various locations.

Not-So-Young-Adult Group

The Not So Young Adult group is an opportunity for fellowship for those who are above the young adult range but not part of the ministry guided towards seniors.  This group usually meets once a month at various locations.

OCF (Orthodox Christian Fellowship) for College Students

OCF meets twice a month in conjuction in Milledgeville with the students of Georgia College.  OCF provides an outlet for students to meet with Orthodox clergy and to keep the connection with the Church in such a pivotal time of their lives.

GOYA/Hope and Joy (Youth)

Our youth currently have a monthly activity where we can get together and share in fellowship with one another outside of the Church setting.  There is also a GOYA meeting on the second Tuesday of the month after Sunday School.

Adult Study Class

The Adult Study Class takes place every Wednesday evening after a small worship service.  Check the "Education" page for more details about the current Adult Study Class.

Altar Servers

It is a privilege and an honor for our boys and young men to worship and serve in the holy sanctuary during the divine services. This ministry is for Orthodox Christian males who are regular church attenders and who typically are at least 8 years old. With the blessing of the priest, it is possible for younger boys to attend and observe. New altar servers typically commence their service in September, at the beginning of the ecclesiastic and school year. For more information please contact Fr. Theodore.


The Chanters beautify the Divine Services through their use of traditional Byzantine chant.  There are opportunities to learn Byzantine Chant both through classes (usually on Saturday afternoon) and the services.  Please contact Fr. Theodore for more details!


Our choir sings during the Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings and on certain feast days.  The hymnography follows the ancient Byzantine-style Orthodox tradition.  If you are interested in joining the Choir, please contact Emily Dermatas, Choir Director.


The Ushers play an important role in welcoming those who arrive for services and keeping good order (cf. 1 Cor 14:40) both during and after the service.
