St. Athanasius Greek Orthodox Church in Arlington, Massachusetts, this week hosted a conference by the Boston Federation of Greek Orthodox Musicians. The church is a central part of the community, which continually seeks to both preserve its heritage, and find new ways for the growing population to become involved.

From the article:
Quote
Nicole Vankuilenburg says she was pleasantly surprised by the number of youth singing in the choir conference this year – about fifteen. Three or four teens show up to sing in church each week. But she's hopeful the Church can get more young people involved.

"It's stressful because a lot of kids see it as an obligation," Vankuilenburg says. "I try to make it fun for them."

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
