The Lecture Series Ministry was started several years ago by members of the parish council and Father Rousakis. In response to the desires of many parishioners, the ministry aims to bring to our community speakers on topics of historical, cultural, and religious significance. We aim, if possible, to highlight events and topics that could be in danger of being forgotten by those less connected with their ancestral heritage. We hope to reach a wide audience, including not only those familiar with a certain topic, but the younger generation and those not exposed previously to these issues. In addition, to appeal to a larger audience we have often co- sponsored the events with other groups or ministries, including the Orthodox Men’s Club, the Hellas Dancers, AFGLC, and others.
