PHILOPTOCHOS


        Our mission is to help human suffering, wherever the need arises and minister to those impoverished materially, emotionally and spiritually.

        Our meetings are held on the 1st Thursday of the month in the Athenagoras Room in the church hall at 10:00 am with the exception of March, June, July, August & December.  The March and August meetings are held in the evening at church.  We do not meet during June & July. In December we have a Christmas Luncheon we enjoy at Moraine Country Club.

        Whether or not you are able to attend our meetings, we welcome your help whenever possible.  We use email to communicate to our members our upcoming events, help needed and meeting information.  Dues are $30 per year, collected in January. 

 

PHILOPTOCHOS CMM

Schneider House of Hope, Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greene County, is to provide emergency shelter to displaced families through a network of faith-based communities. The shelter is a permanent 10-bedroom site that can serve up to 25 adults and children. This group offers a comprehensive continuum of services ranging from shelter, meals and hospitality to case management, financial education, parenting and life skills. The staff links families with community services, training, housing resources, medical and employment resources. This organization is part of the Family Promise Network, a non-profit organization that assists religious and community organizations in developing and operating Network programs. As of August 2017, Schneider has served 25 families comprised of 75 individuals. Executive Director Mallernee says his organization exists to equip client families to acquire a sustainable independence. To help a family with children go from homelessness to sustainable house is a great and God-ordained task.

VISITATIONS

Seven members of our parish are currently receiving visits from the Visitation committee.  The visits bring enjoyment and a message of love and caring.  Let Evonna Hurst or Suzanne Zonars-Hambick know of parish members who would enjoy a visit. The committee goes to nursing homes, the VA and homes of shut-ins.  They need a member who can do visits in north Dayton. This is an important part of the Philoptochos mission.
