Over 70 Ahepan Brothers attended this highly auspicious and prestigious Oath and Initiation Ceremony, along with a sit-down first-class dinner-meeting held at the recently remodeled Social Hall of the Holy Trinity Cathedral.

Father Michael Varvarelis offered the blessings from the community and welcomed the Supreme President Loucas and all of the visiting dignitaries. Fr. Varvarelis reflected on how valuable the local AHEPA Chapter #64 has been to all the philanthropic endeavors in the community and nationally.

Supreme President Loucas spoke about “Invite One,” the primary initiative during his tenure this year. He also referred to AHEPA as being the primary fraternal organization of brothers to offer philanthropy, educational opportunities, charity, and civic participation all over the world, not just here in the United States.
