Philoptochos News

Dear Fellow Parishioners:

On behalf of St. Irenes Philoptochos Society we wish you and your families a most joyous Advent Season.  Our members have had a busy fall.  We have been busy preparing for our Fashion Show which will be held November 8, 2018 at the Venetian, 

In addition to the above activities, we have made donations to benefit the Fires in Greece through the National Philoptochos Disaster Relief Fund.  We celebrated the feast day of Saints Cosmas & Damianos the Holy Un-mercenaries who are the Patron Saint of Philoptochos of November 1st, and passed a tray to benefit the Charities of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on Sunday, November 4, 2018.   

On December, 2, 2018 we will be sponsoring a Loukoumades Sale — $7 per dozen.   Also in December we will be sponsoring a Holiday Bake Sale, where for $40.00 you can purchase Greek Holiday Sweets in Packaged Cellophane for your gift giving needs.   Pick-up date will be Sunday, December 23rd – Pre-orders are available.  

We are planning our annual Christmas Party, which is open to all ladies of the community.   Stay tuned, as we will be announcing date and venue in early November.

As always we are seeking new members.  Membership is open to all Greek Orthodox Parishioners over the age of 18.  Our meetings are the first Tuesday of every month.

We welcome you to join us.

Wishing you and your families a blessed Christmas & a Happy, Healthy New Year.
