National Philoptochos Donates $10K to GOA in Honor of His Eminence’s Name Day

NEW YORK – The Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, Inc. announced on November 2 that Arlene Siavelis Kehl, National Philoptochos President, presented a check in the amount of $10,000 for the Clergy Pension Fund in honor of the name day celebration of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros at the Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New York.

Upon the presentation of the check president Kehl addressed His Eminence, the Clergy, National Philoptochos Board members, and guests stating that “on behalf of our sisterhood, in honor of your name day, we give the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, the enclosed offering of $10,000 to be directed specifically to the Clergy Pension Fund. Given the fact that Philoptochos supports clergy and presvyteres in need, we believe that supporting the clergy pension fund would be most appropriate at this time. In addition, with this donation, we would be most supportive of our beloved priests and presvyteres and their economic security in retirement. Είς πολλά ετη Δεσπότα!”

The National Philoptochos Executive Board was also represented by Anita Kartalopoulos, Second Vice President; Stella Pantelidis, Third Vice President; and Jennifer Constantin, Direct Archdiocesan District President.

The Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society is the philanthropic arm of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
