Hellenic Education Program "Sophia"

Saint Spyridon’s Hellenic Education Program "Sophia" begins its second year in September 2019. While the program is targeted for our community’s youth, we welcome everyone in the community to help strengthen this program. In addition to Greek language instruction, the program includes Greek music and dance, cooking, and arts and crafts. The program runs from September to June on Sundays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and is free of charge for parish members.

Young Adult Ministry

The Saint Spyridon Young Adults and Professionals Ministry started in September 2018. Described by one member as “Goya for grownups”, our monthly meetings are a time both for fellowship and for study and discussion of Orthodoxy. This is a blessing for our community.

Meets monthly at St. Spyridon Church. Check our Facebook page for the next meeting date.

The Seniors of Saint Spyridon welcome those who are interested to participate in our meetings. Our meetings are held on Tuesday and Thursday of every week in our conference room 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. We provide coffee and light lunch. On our calendar, we have various day trips, including monasteries. If you have any questions or would like to additional information or to sponsor the Senior coffee hour, please contact the church office.
