St. Luke Greek School Begins with Agiasmos Service (Photos)

BROOMALL, PA – On October 5, the St. Luke Greek School welcomed students and parents to start off the new school year with the Agiasmos service. Reverend Fr. Christ Kontos offered the Agiasmos service and spoke to the children about the importance of learning and understanding their heritage and the language of their ancestors.

The new school year started with over 64 students and nine teachers. Classes are held every Tuesday from 5-7 PM. St. Luke's Greek School is thriving in enrollments and they attribute that to the support they get from Fr. Kontos, the Parish Council, their dedicated teachers and their very committed PTO. We wish them all the best for the new school year!
