Philoptochos Society

The Philoptochos Society is a national charitable organization that was established in 1931.  The ministry’s name means ‘Friends of the Poor’. We work to aid the poor, the destitute, the hungry, the aged, the sick, the unemployed, the orphaned, the imprisoned, the widowed, the handicapped and victims of disasters.  Philoptochos also works to preserve and perpetuate Orthodox Christian concepts in the family through our faith, customs and traditions. 

The Three Hierarchs Philoptochos chapter is small but mighty! We have meetings occasionally, but communicate often by email.  We have a lot of fun when we get together to bake/cook, and all are welcome. We enjoy having the men in our parish join us for baking also and we are very happy to teach anybody that is willing to work!

Philoptochos needs your time and talents. We are always open to new ideas and can use your help. Women of the Greek Orthodox faith, 18 years of age and older are eligible for membership. You do not need to speak Greek or be of Greek descent to join. If you can’t make it to our meetings you can still join us for our many other events and projects! You can count on us to find a place for your talents and enthusiasm, and it’s a great way for new parishioners to get plugged in to the broader community of Three Hierarchs.
