Sunday Service


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
