NEW YORK -- The Archbishop of America Elpidophoros managed to protect the academic and educational identity of the Hellenic College and the Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Boston, as the two universities are no longer under surveillance and their accreditation was reaffirmed.

The Archbishop of America made a special mention to the Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who from the very beginning invested in the future of the Hellenism of the USA with his decision to actively support with an annual grant of two million euros the Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Boston, a crucial institution for the future of the Greek Diaspora.
