Delphi AHEPA Chapter 25 Celebrates AHEPA Sunday

NEW YORK – Every year, on the third Sunday in May AHEPA Sunday is celebrated at the Greek Orthodox Churches in the USA. This year’s AHEPA Sunday, May 15, however, was not just another AHEPA Sunday… it was also the 100th Anniversary of AHEPA. On this momentous and very special day Delphi AHEPA Chapter 25 attended church services at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Manhattan and presented an Artoklasia which was a service of prayer, of thanksgiving and gratitude for all the members of the chapter.

Immediately after the Divine Liturgy during the Church’s Coffee Hour (which was hosted by the chapter) Chapter President Theodore Klingos presented Fathers Nicholas Karloutsos and Elias Pappas with a donation for the LOTS (Liturgy on the Streets) homeless ministry program of the Cathedral.

On AHEPA Sunday the Chapter’s leadership also visited the St. George & St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Manhattan where a memorial service was held to commemorate our Brothers and Sisters who have fallen asleep in the Lord. May their memory be eternal. The Delphi Chapter’s leadership conveyed their very best wishes and support to Very Rev. Bartholomew Mercado. Present from the Chapter were Chapter President Theodore Klingos, Argyris Argitakos, and Dr. Georgios Syros.

For nearly a century, the Order of AHEPA has promoted the ancient Hellenic ideals of education, philanthropy, civic responsibility, family and individual excellence through community service and volunteerism.
