We encourage all Orthodox Christians to join our beloved Ladies of Philoptochos. Membership fees are a nominal $21.00.  We meet on the second Sunday of the month.

Your generosity supports the Philoptochos ministries at the National, Metropolis, and local parish levels, as well as numerous charities in the greater Chattanooga area.

Our Ministry strives to obey the command of our Lord:

To aid the poor, the destitute, the hungry, the aged, the sick, the unemployed, the orphaned, the imprisoned, the widowed, the handicapped, the victims of disasters, to undertake the burial of the impoverished persons and to offer assistance to anyone who may need the help of the Church through fund raising efforts;

To promote the charitable, benevolent and philanthropic purposes of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, through instructional programs, presentations, lectures, seminars and other educational resources;

To preserve and perpetuate Orthodox Christian concepts and the Orthodox Christian Family, and through them, to promote the Greek Orthodox Faith and traditions, in accordance with its doctrines, canons, discipline, divine worship, usages and customs;

To promote participation in the activities of the Greek Orthodox community, with the cooperation of the Parish Priest and the Parish Council.

Thank you for your support!
