The Enosis - Philoptochos Chapter of Sts. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church

In 2007, the Enosis Ladies Society unanimously voted to become one of 485 Chapters of the National Philoptochos Society of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. In addition to helping Sts. Anargyroi and local charities in the community, the Enosis- Philoptochos Chapter #3033 adopted and contributes financially to the various Christian charities and ministries of the National Philoptochos.

In 2010, we proudly furnished a state of the art kitchen in the new Community Center of our church. Funds for this contribution were raised over a period of 10 years through various fundraisers and much hard work. Moving on into the next decade we will continue with our commitment to reach out and aid those in need, help and beautify our Church, bring the community closer together and endeavor to preserve the Greek culture for future generations.

Enosis-Philoptochos Meetings are usually held at 7:00 PM on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, however due to COVID-19 all meetings there are no meetings scheduled at this time. There are no meetings during the summer months.
