CHERRY HILL, NJ – On Sunday, July 14, the Parish of Saint Thomas in Cherry Hill honored the new Supreme President of AHEPA, George Horiates, who was born and raised in the community and has been serving the parish since his teenage years. He has served as Parish Council President and has been an active member of the council to the present day.

It should be noted that his election took place at the annual AHEPA Convention held in Chicago this year from July 1-6.

While St. Thomas Church is currently being completely renovated, all the services are being held in the Community Hall, where all Parish Council members congratulated Horiates on his great honor. The V. Rev. Archimandrite Christoforos Oikonomidis, presiding priest of the St. Thomas community, presented Horiates, noting that “we all know his love for St. Thomas and his dedication to Hellenism and our national affairs. He has been actively involved with AHEPA, wanting to work hard to contribute his best in the struggle of this Organization to preserve, promote, and protect our Greek heritage, history, and traditions, not only in America, but internationally. After hard work, with dedication and many sacrifices, he managed to reach the highest level of AHEPA, and from this position to work even harder and more committed to the cause. The election and promotion of Mr. Horiates to the position of Supreme President of AHEPA, is an honor and point of pride for all of us, the Parish of St. Thomas, his family and, of course, his beloved ancestors and especially his late father. We all express our congratulations and love to Mr. Horiates, as well as his family, his wife Liza and his children Stavroula and George, who support him in every way, especially his beloved mother Stavroula Horiates who taught him his love for Greece and Orthodoxy. Axios!”

  1. For 30 pieces of silver, The V. Rev. Archimandrite Christoforos Oikonomidis, presiding priest of the St. Thomas community, blesses and endorses a Greek Secret society cult Parish Council President Anastasios Efstratiadis and the new, Supreme President of AHEPA and Chicago 1930’s mob boss look alike, the Hefty.George Horiatis

    Endorsing Secret Societies whose leadership represent radical Mason “Glory to America and Israel” interests not Greek Hellenism, culture and who promote themselves with TNH to be “self appointed” representatives of the Greek community with Secret Societies, violates church authorization for only the PTO and PHILOPTOHOS as affiliates of the church!

    The Reverend and all these secret society cult should be removed from our churches and boards, for fraudulently legitimizing a Secret Society not affiliated with the church, in order to assist these Greek Secret Society cults in recruiting uninformed Greek Orthodox parishioners from our churches to support their secret governments!

    President John F. Kennedy describes in his secret society speech…what The Reverend supports in the name of Christ!

    “The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.”.

  2. continued…by JFK…

    Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions..

    Today, these Greek Secret Societies ..neither have the capacity or interest in really supporting Greeks in America ,Greece or Cyprus, the are merely interested in Networking with anybody who beleives their lies …that they are actually important representatives of the Greek community … to get corrupt politicians like Menendez elected to office, or support legislation that benefits Menendez client ..the Jewish Pro Israel lobby!

    They are frauds who depend on Photo Ops, and theater with the Good reverend ..to protray themselves as crusaders for Greeks, when the make themselves Supreme everything in their fantasy camp called Ahepa or Halc!

    They have no place among Greeks…and all their current members should run from them, since, many of the members are sincerely proud of their heritage , and believe they are working to preserve it , but have no clue as to what their work is really supporting …since, they are victims of a secret society.which conceals information to them …and with the help of fake news TNH…and the Greek Orthodox Clergy !

    All church board members should have no membership in these Greek secret Societies which conflict with there sworn oaths to the master of us all …Christ and his church!

    They cannot serve two masters …and that goes for the Good Reverend!
