Philoptochos (Ladies Auxiliary)

Our Philoptohos (Ladies Auxiliary) has for decades been a most crucial aspect of this communities goodwill and charity drive.


Comprised of our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and nieces, they are ready to provide support where it's needed - without hesitation and without compromise.


The goals of the Philoptochos


  • To preserve the sacredness of the Orthodox family through family concern, service, unity of action

  • To promote the philanthropic purposes of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Toronto (Canada)

  • To aid anyone who may need the help of the Church

  • To support participation in the activities of the Greek Orthodox community with the cooperation of the Parish Priest and the Parish Council.

Απολυτίκιον (Ήχος πλ. α') 

Φιλοπτώχων προστάτιδα ευφημήσωμεν, Φιλοθέην αγνήν την οσιομάρτυρα, πλούτον πάντα ενδεέσιν κατηνάλωσε, εκδιδάσκουσα ημάς αγαπάν και βοηθείν πτωχούς και εμπεριστάτους. Και νυν πρεσβεύει τω Κυρίω διδόναι πάσι χάριν και έλεος.
