Greek Independence Parade 2022

November 12, 2021

NEW YORK – On November 11th, 2021, following the request of all of the parties involved in the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York to bring peace to current difficulties, His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America welcomed them at the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.

Following a full and honest conversation, His Eminence asked each of the representatives present to put aside the current differences that exist in order to focus on the upcoming Greek Independence Parade of 2022, which will celebrate the closing of the Greek BiCentennial, the Centennial celebration of the Archdiocese and Centennial celebration of AHEPA. His Eminence recommended the following, which were accepted and agreed upon unanimously:

  • A Committee will be created by all parties, under the bylaws of the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York, that will focus on the 2022 Greek Independence Day parade on Fifth Avenue in New York City.
  • Mr. John Catsimatidis, Vice-Chairman of the Archdiocesan Council, will preside over the composition of the Parade Committee and will oversee the planning and execution of the 2022 Parade.
  • All meetings of the Parade Committee will happen at the Stathakeion Center in Astoria.
