In 2012 our Greek Orthodox Community’s first ever SENIORS PROGRAM began.  This much needed ministry of our Church Community became a reality through the careful planning and qualified direction of Mrs. Hellen Jarman and Mrs. Maria Menounos under the Spiritual guidance of Fr. Konstantine Chatzis,

The purpose of this program to provide seniors in our Greek Orthodox Community a variety of organized programs, activities and fellowship in a positive, faith-based and supportive environment that enhances well-being and healthy aging.
