St. Nectarios Pilgrimage: Metropolitan Philoptochos‏

With the blessings of his Eminence Metropolitan PAVLOS, the Metropolitan Philoptochos is organizing a Metropolis-wide pilgrimage to St. Nectarios Parish in Escorse, MI, for the feast St. Nectarios on November 21-22, 2009.

This year's Philoptochos Pilgrimage is in support of St. Nectarios Parish in Michigan, as St. Nectarios has been one of the Parishes most effected by the current economic recession. Dinner tickets will be available at Parishes throughout our Metropolis for anyone to purchase as a donation in support of St. Nectarios.

To reserve hotel accommodations, please contact your local parish philoptochos coordinators or Despina Avgoustis (This email address is being protected from spambots.
