The Church Family The Church Family

In an effort to encourage and increase participation, we are happy to follow the lead of our beloved Metropolitan and continue to focus on our families, including the nuclear family, parish family, metropolis family…we are all an integral part of the Body of Christ; the Christian Family.  With this in mind, we welcome George Papageorge and Presbytera Pat Tsagalakis from the Family Wellness Ministry of the San Francisco Metropolis.  More information is available at www.familywellnessministry.org.

We look forward to informative and interactive sessions for all individuals, couples, and families – Our Church Family. During our time together, we will also have opportunities to enjoy fellowship and to develop and strengthen relationships among our Christian brothers and sisters from our vast Metropolis.
