ORATORICAL SPEECHES ONLINE!

On March 1, 2020 St. Nicholas held our 2020 St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival.   We heard 6 wonderful speeches by the young people of our church.   Sadly, due to the pandemic, the succeeding levels of the Festival (the Virginia District, the New Jersey Metropolis and the Nationals) were cancelled for this year.   Therefore, our finalists did not have the opportunity to advance and participate in the higher levels of the Oratorical Festival.

To help remedy this, the Archdiocese requested the speeches from each parish be posted on that church’s social media. This gives the Faithful everywhere the opportunity to watch and listen.

Our 2020 speakers were:   Junior Division - Jolie Colton & Kaycie Colton. Senior Division – Luke Henkel, Caroline Lowe, Natalia Komiti & Dimitrios Komitis.  

St. Nicholas is proud to share these short videos. Please take a minute to view them. We believe you will be impressed and share our view that the future of the Orthodox Church is in good hands.
