Philoptochos honored with Lifetime Achievement Award
The Alpha Omega Council honored the National Philoptochos Society and the Metropolis of Boston Philoptochos Society with their Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2013 Alpha Omega Lifetime Achievement Banquet on Saturday, June 8, 2013 at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel in Boston, MA. President Aphrodite Skeadas accepted the award on behalf of all 27,000 Philoptochos Stewards across the country saying, “In honoring the Metropolis of Boston Philoptochos and the National Philoptochos Society, you recognize 27,000 brave, strong and decisive women throughout the country and most importantly you identify the noble offering of our ancestors whose founding efforts have flourished for more than 80 years as friends of the poor – and as His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios stated earlier tonight – Philoptochos means ‘love of the poor’ and ‘seeing the face of Christ in the face of suffering.’”
The Focus of Philoptochos is its Mission
We, the National Board of Philoptochos, for the term 2012-2014, humbly, gratefully and respectfully accept Your Eminence’s charge to represent the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
