Best wishes from Philoptochos for a most joyous Christmas holiday with family and friends!


Thank you one and all who participated in our Thanksgiving Baklava Pan Sale.  We are grateful to all the people who worked on this program.  Thank you to all who purchased and/or donated to this program. The Baklava Pan Sale revenue will be utilized to provide support to CNY programs and national programs that aid families, as well as our Philoptochos scholarship program.

In December we will have Philoptochos get together after church on the third floor.  The date of the get together has yet to be determined and will be announced in the weekly bulletin and in church.  We would like to have a Christmas get together and reconnect with our members. St. Sophia Community members that are considering joining this coming year are welcome!  Looking forward to seeing everyone!

We are working to coming together as an organization and unveiling new programs for 2022.  The Philoptochos organization has a rich history of making a difference in the lives of people.  In Syracuse, our chapter has supported our beloved St. Sophia community as well as organizations in our immediate area. We also support designated and approved National and International programs.   Our mission is to help make a difference in people’s lives.

Our focus in 2022 is to bring the women of our community together to be there for each other as well as the community. There is so much we can do when we band together.  Stay tuned!


With compassion and caring,

Roberta Williams Hristodoulou
