Philoptochos Chapter 1014: Saint Theodore Greek Orthodox Church, Lanham MD

Fall 2011 News:

It has been five years since I met those wonderful Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptohos at St. Theodore Lanham, Maryland. The most important thing I mentioned- as a new member- was that all these ladies were extremely hard workers. With their boundless enthusiasm and dynamic spirit, they were helping our small church.

The giving of their work, their talents, their thoughts are actions that make their lives worthwhile and fulfilling.

It will truly be my privilege to serve them as President for the next two years.

Our chapter is trying to be supportive of the National Philoptohos commitments/programs and will continue to do so, in spite of our small parish and chapter. We are especially committed to St. Theodore, to be its philanthropic arm as we reach out locally, to those in need.

St. Theodore of Lanham, Maryland is looking forward to a challenging future with his Eminence Metropolitan Panteleimon of Antinoes, our current spiritual Father.

We are blessed to have His Eminence with us, as we continue our charitable work.

During our first executive board meeting His Eminence offered suggestions and guidance, we were honored by the presence of Him.

Since the early 70’ when our church was established, we have had many issues by changing Priests very often at different temmporary locations. Today St.Theodore is a very small but yet very beautifull church in Lanham.

At the end I would like to express my great appreciation to National Philoptohos Society for giving us the opportunity to participate in this philanthropic mission.

With love in Christ

Maria Kapsalis
