What is YAL?
The Young Adult League (or YAL) chapter at the St. Sophia Greek Orthodox church in San Antonio, Texas has a demographic of males and females ranging in age from 18-35. This group brings college students, young professionals, and budding families from the church community together.
The objective of this YAL Chapter is to: share in discussions about the church and biblical scripture, generate community involvement through volunteerism, and build fellowship to bridge the gap between youth in the church and the elders of the church.
YAL members have participated in Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels routes, the annual Greek FUNstival, monastery visits, reading Psalms during Presanctified services, Folklife Festival, sponsoring a family for Christmas, and have a deep desire to find new ways to reach out and help their church and their community.
