Philoptochos Society

The Mission of the Society

The Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society is an official philanthropic organization of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, established in November of 1931. Philoptochos is the largest organization of Greek Orthodox women which supports many charities while spiritually enriching its members through their participation in its philanthropic work. In over 76 years of existence, we can proudly state that Philoptochos is the second largest women’s philanthropic organization in the United States in terms of money donated to charitable causes. Philoptochos functions at the local, diocesan, national, and international levels and is open to all women over 18 years old who are of the Greek Orthodox faith.

Membership in the St. Nicholas Ladies Philoptochos Society is open to all women of our parish ages 18 and older.  We encourage all ladies of our community to join us to continue the good works of our organization.
