The entrance fee, donations and sponsorships will all help to raise the money for local charitable organizations who rely on donation for their charitable work.

“As a group, we believe it is important to contribute, support and participate in philanthropic activities that will help our local community,” said President of Savannah’s Philoptochos, Bonnie Danos. “We look forward to continuing this important work by inviting everyone to join us in making this year’s event an unprecedented success that will raise thousands of dollars for our local charities.”

“I am proud of the commitment and generosity of our women’s group who give of their time to host charitable activities and work in the community to help those who are in need,” said Father Vaile Mihai, Priest at St. Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church of Savannah. “I also appreciate the support of our local restaurateurs and wine distributors who graciously donate food and beverages for this important event to support our local charities, organizations and people in need.”

Wines served at the Savannah Food and Wine Tasting will be selected under the guidance of Diane Rousakis, a renowned wine connoisseur and distributor. The sponsors and donors for the 2018 Food and Wine Tasting include: United Distributors and Savannah Distributing Company as well as Olympia Café, Crystal Beer Parlor, Papa’s Barbeque and Seafood,  Yia Yia’s Café, Chromatic Dragon, Asian River,  Catering Creations by LaVon, and other great restaurants.

The Philoptochos is the largest organization of Greek Orthodox women supporting many charities while spiritually enriching its members through their participation in its philanthropic work. Established in 1931, Philoptochos is the second largest women’s philanthropic organization in the United States to give to charitable causes; second only to the Sisterhood of Hadassah, the Jewish women’s charitable group.

Discussion Group and the Catechism Classes

Dear Friends,

We announced in the Monthly Newsletter (The Voice of St. Paul, September 2017) that besides the Bible class, we will start in this Fall two new classes: the Discussion Group and the Catechism.

The Discussion Group is geared to religious, ethical and moral subjects and open to any interested person (Orthodox or non-Orthodox). The format is free and the subjects of discussion are proposed by the participants in the previous meeting. I will be just a moderator, to keep the decorum and to channel the discussions to the subject matter. The first meeting will be on Monday, September 25th at 6:00pm, the Hellenic Center, the Conference Room upstairs. This first meeting will be dedicated to the organization of the Group and may take a bite of the subject, “The issue of gender in contemporary America.”

The Catechism class will strive to offer an introduction to Orthodoxy to those people who would like to convert to the Orthodox faith. Other people, Orthodox or not, interested in enlarging their knowledge about Orthodoxy are warmly welcomed. There are six lessons (1 1/2 to 2 hours each) with materials provided and which will intend to cover the main areas of historical, liturgical, sacramental and moral aspects of Orthodoxy. The first class (Lesson 1) is scheduled for Thursday, September 28th, 6:00pm, in the Hellenic Center, Conference Room upstairs. The first class is dedicated to the “History of the Christian Church and of the Orthodox Church.”

If you know other people interested to attend any of the classes, please invite them to attend.

Looking forward to see you,

Fr. Vasile
