Ladies Philoptochos Society

‍The Ladies Philoptochos Society is the women’s auxiliary of the Greek Orthodox Church in the United States. Originally founded in 1931 to help the poor, the Society has expanded its mission into all areas of philanthropy. Philoptochos chapters not only aid their local parishes but also support national and world-wide projects (such as providing medical care for children, feeding & housing displaced persons, etc.).

                                           Meetings are held in person (Zoom option available) on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m.
