PHILOPTOCHOS


        Our mission is to help human suffering, wherever the need arises and minister to those impoverished materially, emotionally and spiritually.

        Our meetings are held on the 1st Thursday of the month in the Athenagoras Room in the church hall at 10:00 am with the exception of June, July, August, October & December.  The August and October meetings are held in the evening at church.  We do not meet during June & July. In December we have a Christmas Luncheon we enjoy at Moraine Country Club.

        Whether or not you are able to attend our meetings, we welcome your help whenever possible.  We use email to communicate to our members our upcoming events, help needed and meeting information.  Dues are $30 per year, collected in January. 

 

Community Care Ministry 

In the spirit of the Christmas season and the celebration of our Lord and Savior’s birth, please join us in supporting Brigid’s Path. They provide inpatient medical care for drug-exposed newborns, nonjudgmental support for mothers, and education services to improve family outcomes. brigidspath.org Chairperson is Athena Baldridge. For a donation of $20 or more, you will receive a hand-blown glass ornament in appreciation of your support of this worthy organization ministering to the innocent and suff ering. Checks should be made payable to Philoptochos with CCM on the memo line and can be deposited in the Red Box or sent to Michelle Zois at 111 Diamond Drive, Centerville, Ohio 45458.

VISITATIONS

Seven members of our parish are currently receiving visits from the Visitation committee.  The visits bring enjoyment and a message of love and caring.  Let Evonna Hurst or Suzanne Zonars-Hambick know of parish members who would enjoy a visit. The committee goes to nursing homes, the VA and homes of shut-ins.  They need a member who can do visits in north Dayton. This is an important part of the Philoptochos mission.
