Great Lent Giveaway
The Great Lent Giveaway was designed as a way for our youth to learn about the beauty of Great Lent and instill in them that Great Lent is not only a time of fasting but a time to do good works and of contemplation, while preparing for the death and Glorious Resurrection of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The current year program and programs from past years are provided
below. They may be used during Great Lent or be adapted for use during your normal Youth Group Sessions.

The GLG is a partnership of the OYM and the Jr. Ukrainian Orthodox League.

What is Zoe for Life?

We hope that you are able to support the efforts of your Jr UOL or Youth Group in raising funds and awarness for Zoe for Life.

In addition to raising funds for the Zoe for Life, what else will the GLG do?

We hope to provide information about the Zoe and the work it is supporting. In addition, to deepen the faith of our young people, lessons will be provided to learn about almsgiving and the importance of life.
