Dear Philoptochos Sister,
We hope you and your families are well as we journey through Great Lent. As we approach this deeply spiritual time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving we ask you to please support our annual Paschal Appeal.
For 90 years, Philoptochos has served those in need with empathy and love. Our Metropolis Philoptochos continues to serve our communities as we have partnered with National Philoptochos and other philanthropic agencies to aid those affected by COVID and the winter storms in Texas.
The need for social service assistance in our Metropolis is great, as many continue to struggle during these difficult times. We have given emergency financial assistance to families and individuals in need of food, needing help with housing, medical and funeral expenses. A food donation was also given to the Navajo Nation in New Mexico.
Your donation to the Paschal Appeal allows our Metropolis Philoptochos to support, distribute, and underwrite the various administrative expenses associated with maintaining our Metropolis. Because of your generosity, your Metropolis of Denver Philoptochos disbursed more than $50,000 in 2020.
Last month, it was an honor for members of the Metropolis Board to welcome and host
His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros during his first visit to Denver. The weekend was full of spiritual guidance and fellowship. Wishing you strength through this Lenten period. Kali Sarakosti.
When Philoptochos sees pain and suffering, we strive to offer comfort.
When Philoptochos sees hunger, we aspire to offer sustenance.
When Philoptochos sees despair, we seek to offer hope.
Your Sister in Christ, Valerie Katsimitas
