Delphi AHEPA Chapter 25 Supports St. George & St. Demetrios Church

NEW YORK – AHEPA Delphi Chapter 25 held its general membership meeting at the Saint George and Saint Demetrios Church Hall in Manhattan on March 10. In a statement via email, the chapter said: “As we entered the Lenten period, we invited Very Rev. Bartholomew Mercado, proistamenos of the church, to address our group. The topic we asked that he talk with us about was the Autocephalous Orthodox Church of the Ukraine. This was not only an informative presentation, as this was blessed in 2019 by His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew, but it was also very topical with the recent events in the region.”

“During the meeting we reviewed the recent activities of the Chapter, as well as upcoming calendar of events through June,” the statement continued. “Of note, was the recent confirmation we received for our event at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential Library in Hyde Park that will be held on Saturday, April 30. This was previously scheduled to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of the gift of the statue of the former President by Delphi Chapter 25, and was postponed by the pandemic. We are excited about this event as it will be open to all Brothers of District 6, and have an opportunity to bring together Upstate and Downstate Chapters and their families to enjoy the Brotherhood AHEPA fosters. We are still putting together the details and will make them available shortly.”

“The evening was enhanced by having a light Lenten supper during our meeting, and as we closed the meeting, the Chapter presented Fr. Bartholomew with a check in the amount of $1,000 to be used by the church in its ministry,” the chapter statement concluded.
