Coffee Hour Hosting – If you have the time, we encourage everyone to help host at least one Sunday.  We always need the help and would really appreciate everyone’s involvement throughout the year.  

If you have any questions or would like to help, please feel free to stop by the Philoptochos table after Sunday's liturgy in the social hall.

We are looking forward to a busy and exciting rest of the year!  Thank you all for your continued support of the St. Demetrios Philiptochos charities.
