Ministries - Philoptochos - August 2012 News


This Summer I had the privilege of participating in the 2012 National Biennial Convention in Phoenix Arizona, under the Chairmanship of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America. This gathering offered the opportunity to share spirit, camaraderie, and fellowship. It provided a forum for review of existing programs, analysis of finances and, forward planning. I would like to report that through the generous contributions and commitment of the 485 Philoptochos Chapters throughout the United States of America, the National Philoptochos Society donated $2,853,158.00 to its various philanthropic ministries, programs, project, and special appeals. In ADDITION to the above, I am thrilled to say that our National Philoptochos gave a check in the amount of $185,000.00 for aid to our people in Greece! Needless to say, I left that convention,with much pride not only for this beautiful organization, but for ALL the wonderful women who are a part of it. Thank you all so much for being a part of Philoptochos!
