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 March, June, July, August & December.  The March and August 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.

Technology Addiction and Cyber-bullying 

We know you have heard a lot about it in the news, Philoptochos and AIF will be sponsoring a speaker on this very important and timely topic. Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 7 immediately following church for a presentation by Rick Mann. He will speak to high school freshmen and older. Parents and grandparents should also attend. A light lunch will be served and child care provided. Remember “What happens on the Internet stays on the Internet.” More details to follow. Any questions, please contact Cindy Keilholz 937-974-8841cinlamkeil@gmail.com

 

Baubles and Bags 

Our first Baubles and Bags was so popular, we are planning another one on October 21. Since Spring is FINALLY here, now is the time to look over all your gently used purses and jewelry and set them aside for our sale. Please keep them until we have a set time and place to bring all your donations to our chairpersons to be priced!

2018 ANNUAL DUES

Dues are $30 payable to Philoptochos. Suzanne Zonars-Hambrick, Membership Chair will gladly accept your payment. You can also give a gift of a 2017 Philoptochos membership to someone at our church. Please let Suzanne know and we will send a note to the recipient on your behalf. It’s a great way to introduce a younger church member to our great organization!
 

 

DO YOU NEED A RIDE?

Contact Evonna Hurst (937-813-2201) if you need a ride to church or a Philoptochos meeting.  She will provide a list of members in your area who have volunteered to give rides.  

 

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.
