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. 

 

JUNE CCM: SUPPORT OUR VETERANS

The June CCM will support the 37th National Veterans Wheelchair Games, held in Cincinnati this July. On June 20th from 5 - 8pm we will have an evening at Skyline Chili (it's always Skyline time) on Kingsridge Drive to raise funds to support local veterans’ participation in the games. We have invited some of the Wheelchair Games participants to join us at the Skyline event. Plan to attend so we can honor our veterans and raise money for a very important event.

JUNE 20th SKYLINE CHILI FUNDRAISER TO SUPPORT OUR VETERANS 

The June CCM will support the 37th National Veterans Wheelchair Games. This year the games are being held in Cincinnati July 17-22, 2017. On June 20 from 5-8pm, we will have an evening at Skyline Chili on Kingsridge Drive to raise funds to sponsor local veterans participation in the games. The cost, about $500 per veteran, includes transportation, lodging, food, etc. Several local participants will be joining us for dinner. Veterans compete in the following events plus many others: Archery, Basketball, Boccia, Bowling, Field Events, Power Soccer, Quad Rugby, Swimming, Trapshooting and Weightlifting. Please support June’s CCM by attending the evening at Skyline Chili where a portion of the proceeds will support our veterans at these games or by donating money in the Red Box in the church entryway or sending a check to church made out to Philoptochos with CCM in the memo line. These veterans gave a lot for us, so let’s support them at the 37th Wheelchair Games. Thank you, Cindy Keilholz and Nikki Burns

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.
