NEW YORK – On November 14, the Delphi AHEPA Chapter 25 offered a memorial service at the Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Manhattan to commemorate the veteran brothers and sisters of the chapter and throughout the AHEPA family who served in the Armed Forces, in the United States and Greece, and are no longer with us. Fr. Nikolas Karloutsos, Dean of the Cathedral, offered the Trisagion and reflected on AHEPA and the importance of continuing the tradition to recognize our veterans. May their memory be eternal.
Immediately following the Divine Liturgy during the Coffee Hour, the Delphi Chapter arranged for a table where Brothers in attendance greeted and recognized veterans of the community. In addition, the chapter members were able to also highlight the chapter’s activities and membership initiative. The chapter invited all veterans who served in the U.S.A. or Hellenic Armed Forces to register.
