The Kingston Greek History Project is still looking for additions to its archives. If you have photos or written biographical statements/stories to add to our community's history, we'd love to see them!
Sending out a big welcome to our new Priest, Father Nikodimos George Kodogeorgakis, with open hearts. Thank you for forgiving us, our errors, in your name. Father Nikodimos was born and raised in Montreal. We are blessed to have you!
Fr Matthew and Presvytera Catherine Penney Goodbye Lunch
On August 19th, we said farewell to Fr Matthew Penney and Presvytera Catherine with a big lunch hosted by both the community council and Philoptohos. We also had former Priest Fr. Chrysostomos Achilleos and his family visiting! It was a lovely event, attended by many, with heartwarming speeches. Father Matthew and Presvytera Catherine will be missed, and their contributions to our community will be felt for years to come. We wish them well in their future endeavors.
We are excited to announce the Greek History Project's new website! The site will hold all interviews, photos, and documents provided to the project. Visit the site to see our archives, and contact us if you still want to take part in the project! (Contact Angeline Boswell, the research assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Yesterday, during Open Doors Kingston, city residents had the opportunity to visit a number of amazing places featured in Kingston. Here is a photo of Mayor Paterson visiting the Greek Church and tasting pastries made by the Ladies of Philoptochos. Fr. Matthew Penney and Presvytera Catherine Penney led Koimisis Tis Theotokos Greek Orthodox Church tours and discussions. even accomplished women, all members of our community, spoke on a variety of topics. Thanks to all of the inspiring speakers! Kudos to Paula Antonakos for organizing the event.
Kingston City Council approved our grant request for $11 500 for the Kingston Greek History Project! The history project will take stories of our community elders and archive them so they will never be forgotten.
