Dear Parents,
We would like to thank you for bringing the children to us on Sunday mornings. We are working hard to bring Christ and His teachings to our new generation. At this time, we are enclosing the schedule that we will follow for the next few weeks leading to graduation. The lessons below reflect Jesus’ journey from crucifixion to resurrection. These lessons are strategically planned so that there will be more in depth discussion about our experience within during Holy Week.

WE WILL BE THERE TO GUIDE AND PRAY WITH YOUR CHILD AND HUMBLY WITNESS JESUS’ JOURNEY AS A FAMILY! PLEASE REFER TO THE HOLY WEEK SCHEDULE FOR SERVICES.

A new Era: Zoodohos Peghe elects the first female president , Sophia Zarvos. Congratulations!

President’s Message


The community of Zoodohos Peghe and the Greek American Institute has been my second home since the day I was born. I am truly humbled and honored and I thank you for entrusting in me the position of President.

It takes many people, with their love for the community, their energy, their time, their devotion, and their dreams for a bright future, to make a difference. I look forward in working with the newly elected Parish Council members and to continue the amazing journey that my predecessors before me have started.

A special thank you to Spyro Dimitratos for his leadership and friendship.

Respectfully, Sophia Zarvos

Outgoing President’s Message


Three years ago I was nominated and elected President of the Community of Zoodohos Peghe and The Greek American Institute. We accomplished many things but like all communities our work is never done. On Sunday we elected Sophie Zarvos as our new President and I am confident that she will move us forward and accomplish what we were unable to do the last few years. Like most all communities new leadership is not only welcomed but expected. With new leadership comes new ideas and progress.

I look forward to working with Sophie and the rest of the parish council in the new year and for years to come.

In closing I have to admit that being President of ZP / GAI was one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done.

Love and admiration

Spyro D. Dimitratos

A Big Thank You to All Who Participated In Making our Grecian Festival A Success!

A lot of hard work went into making our Festival go off so smoothly. I would like to thank all who made it happen.

There are too many of you to name individually, but if it were not for you such a valuable Festival would not have been possible.

Thank you to all our sponsors. Without your support, both in sponsoring the event itself and in your ongoing contributions to our parish, the Festival could not have been such a success.

We also wanted to send a big THANK YOU to everyone who visited us. It wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for the community supporting us throughout this whole process–from spreading the word to volunteering at our Festival and showing up to our event.

It really does take a village to make something like this come to life.
