Port Jefferson AHEPA Celebrates the Three Hierarchs & Greek Language

PORT JEFFERSON, NY – The AHEPA Port Jefferson Chapter 319 on January 24, following the Divine Liturgy celebrated by Frs. Lou Nicholas and Demetrios N. Calogredes at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption in Port Jefferson paid tribute to the Feast of the Three Hierarchs and the Greek Letters.

Students of the Greek Afternoon School Katerina Rodolico and Alexandros Manolis read essays about the lives of the Saints and their contributions to Greek Education. Continuing the program, the AHEPA leadership spoke about the Chapter’s activities during the past year. The Chapter donated 1,000 masks and 1,000 pairs of gloves to parishioners and friends. They also donated $1,000 for scholarship to students at Stony Brook University who are enrolled in the Hellenic Studies Program. Donations were also made for the victims of the terrible fires in California.

Lastly, the Chapter sponsored its 3rd Annual Fishing trip in late September which brought good fellowship and a huge catch of fish for all the members and friends who participated.

AHEPA 319 is dedicated to promoting the Greek Language, culture, traditions, philanthropy and the precious Greek Orthodox Faith to all members and families throughout the community of Port Jefferson and beyond.
