Our President

Stella Piches Image.png

My name is Stella Piches and I have been blessed to serve the Metropolis of Denver Philoptochos Board for over 15 years, with the last 2 years as 1st vice president. I have been blessed to have served on the National Philoptochos Board for the past 3 years. At the Metropolis of Denver Philoptochos meeting in Tulsa Oklahoma, I had the honor of being elected your new President! I am humbled and will work hard to continue my philanthropic work for the next two years.

Please do not forget about our projects Feeding the Hungry and Operation Classroom. Both are very worthwhile and need all of our support. 

Lastly, I encourage all of you to make an effort to support each other as we all work together for the common ministry of Philotochos.


In His Service, 

Stella Piches, President

Metropolis of Denver Philoptochos

National Philoptochos Society 

The benevolent works of Philoptochos are a continuation of Christ's ministry on earth where we can return to God a portion of the time, talents and resources with which He has gifted us. With the leadership and guidance of Archbishop Elpidophoros, Philoptochos will continue to transcend the confines of the Greek community by broadening its focus to include issues on an International, National and Local level.
