Philoptochos





Our St. Spyridon Philoptochos Chapter is part of the National Philoptochos Society, which is made up of more than 400 chapters and 26,000 members across the U.S. Celebrating 85 years, Philoptochos is the largest Christian women's philanthropic organization in the nation.
Philoptochos, which means "friends of the poor" in Greek, is a philanthropic arm of the church, providing aid to the poor, the hungry and those in need in our parish, community, country and across the globe. We connect members of our parish to one another through service to those in need.
In the past 10 years Philoptochos has donated time, talent, and more than $104,000 in treasure to various causes including:

St. Basil Academy

IOCC

St. Nektarios Education Fund

Philippines Typhoon Relief

Aid to Ecuador

St. Nicholas Shrine at the WTC

Hurricane Sandy

Colorado Flood Relief

House of Neighborly Service

CROP Walk to End Hunger

Thanksgiving food baskets

Christmas Adopt-a-Family

Various local food banks

Life Choices Pregnancy Center of Loveland

Aid to Greece and Cyprus

Loveland Community Kitchen

Louisiana Flood Relief

and of course, our own parishioners in need

In addition to our philanthropic/service projects, Philoptochos supports the Myrrhbearers Prayer Group, the Support Angels and Senior Support Angels, and the Burial Society.
 

When We Meet:
Every woman in our parish is invited and encouraged to join Philoptochos. Meetings are typically held the second Monday of each month at 7 pm in the St. Spyridon "Upper Room". In 2017 and beyond we will "do more doing" by focusing on hands-on, Christ-centered philanthropic work.
 

Getting Involved:
Any female member of the St. Spyridon community age 18 and up is welcomed to join our team.
