We invite you to join us in prayer every Sunday.

We believe that God hears our prayers and that when we unite in prayer, we are joining forces with the Lord’s army to pray for His will.

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

Thank you for coming to our
Youth Ministry Potluck

What a wonderful turnout we had for our Potluck!

Thank you all for bringing such an amazing selection of food to share with one another. It wouldn’t have been as successful without your help. We hope that you had a great time, had a chance to reconnect and made some new friends.

We would like to especially thank Teddy Germanakos for organizing it and all the parents who brought the food and took time out of their busy schedules to come out and meet everyone.

Thanks to you all again, for making this such a success this year!

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.
