On behalf of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, we are very excited to announce that PARATHOSI 2017 will be held on Saturday, February 11th, 2017.  This will be more than just a celebration of Hellenic Heritage & Dance. It will be an opportunity for all the Youth and Young Adults of the Direct Archdiocesan District to come together to celebrate our faith, culture, and heritage in a spirit of Orthodox fellowship.
