Philoptochos

The Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society is the women’s philanthropic organization of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.

The mission of the society is to provide aid and relief to those in need as well as to preserve and perpetuate Orthodox Christian concepts and the Orthodox Christian family. Through fundraising, outreach, and community service events, the Philoptochos chapter of Archangel Michael supports philanthropic causes on a local, national and international level. The Philoptochos meets monthly. For more information please contact: philoptochos@archangelmichaelchurch.org.
