"Dancing is the most immediate expression of human feelings and emotions, the most alive ... expressing the urge of the subconscious, overcrowded with so many different feelings."

Dora Stratou, 1966


PARATHOSI is a ministry of the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries of the Direct Archdiocesan District.  It gives our youth the ability to come together in Orthodox fellowship and display our Hellenic heritage and pride.  We are very excited that parishes along with our cultural organization will have the ability to participate in this event.  They will have the ability to showcase their knowledge of traditional dances, songs and costumes from various regions.
