Bishop Sebastian of Zela celebrated Divine Liturgy this morning assisted by Fr. Nick and Fr. Patrick and welcomed the Direct Archdiocesan District Philoptochos Board including National Philoptochos President Maria Logus and and DAD President Jennifer Constantine. Bishop Sebastian gave the ladies present at a luncheon, following the service, an icon of the Saints Anargyroi commissioned by Archbishop Demetrios for the Philoptochos.
At the luncheon, our Philoptochos president Marina Sirras presents His Grace Bishop Sebastian with a $5,000 check from the New Rochelle Philoptochos Society for Apostoli, the largest food relief organization in Greece, distributing food to 10,000 families each month.
