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.

SUMMER MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS
The next membership meeting will be in the evening on August 24 at 6 PM in the Athenagoras Room. Members are asked to bring an appetizer or salad to share. We look forward to seeing all the women who cannot attend the daytime meetings. Members are encouraged to bring a friend who is not a member of Philoptochos to show her all the good things we do and the fun we have. There will not be a meeting in September since we will be getting ready for our Festival.

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.
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.
