AHEPA was founded on July 26, 1922 in response to the evils of bigotry and racism that emerged in early 20th century American society.  It also helped Greek immigrants assimilate into society.


Today, AHEPA brings the ideals of ancient Greece, which includes philanthropy, education, civic responsibility, and family and individual excellence to the community.


Although a majority of the membership is composed of Americans of Greek descent, application for membership is open to anyone who believes in the mission of the organization.

AHEPA Luncheon March 25

The AHEPA Dayton Chapter #113 is hosting a luncheon, with the Daughters of Penelope, in honor of the Feast Day of the Annunciation and Independence Day of Greece on Sunday, March 25 following the Divine Liturgy. The luncheon will coincide with the Greek School kids program. The AHEPA brothers will cook the Lenten meal featuring baked cod plaki, baked with vegetables and wine. Mark your calendars!


The first Monday of every month the parish community gathers to make sandwiches for The House of Bread serving needy individuals in Dayton. The supplies needed are sandwich bread, meat and cheese. If you are not able to attend, you may to drop off the supplies in the kitchen refrigerator after church on Sunday, March, 4, and we will construct the sandwiches.
