Ladies Philoptochos Society
Artoclasia and Memorial Service on November 1, 2020
Our Philoptochos chapter will offer Artoclasia after the second Liturgy on 1st November to commemorate the Feast Day of their Patron Saints, Cosmas and Damianos (November 1st) for the health, spiritual well-being and salvation of their president, past presidents, officers, members, their families, and the entire community of Saint George.
Our chapter will also hold a Memorial Service for members of our chapter that have fallen asleep in the Lord.
At the end of the second Liturgy the Ladies will pass a tray to collect money for the Ecumenical Patriarchate. This is one of the annual commitments our chapter has to meet with the National Philoptochos.
Ladies Philoptochos Society Service Project October 10, 2020.
Children from our Sunday School together with the Holy Trinity Sunday School met at Elmwood Cemetery on October 10th for a service project sponsored by our Philoptochos Chapter. Our children learned about traditions and customs our church follows for those that have fallen asleep in the Lord. We also held a Trisagion for the Bishops, priests and Ieromonahoi that are buried at Elmwood Cemetery around the Transfiguration of our Lord Chapel. Thank you to Adinamis Funeral Directors, Ltd., for co-sponsoring our event.
