Philoptochos News

With the words “Neither Snow Nor Rain…” begins the US Postal Service creed. Well, this can be said to apply to Annunciation Cathedral’s parishioners who, on Sunday, February 8, braved the worst rain storm in decades to turn out for the Parish Vasilopita, sponsored by the Cathedral Ladies Philoptochos. The kalanta (New Year’s carols) were sung and the Vasilopita (St. Basil’s Bread) was offered. After the Vaslilopita was cut and pieces distributed to the heads of the Cathedral’s various ministries and parish organizations, a wonderful brunch was served. Each table also had a Vasilopita. Tradition has it that whoever gets the Vasilopita coin has a special blessing for the year. The individual Vasilopitas contained one coin each. The main Vasilopita, however, had three coins. The three coins fell to Tula Mouroufas, who that day represented all those who are contributing to rebuild the Cathedral church; Deno Konstantinidis who, as coach, represents the Cathedral’s basketball program; and Dr. Katina Kostoulas, who represents OIKOS (Orthodox in Koinonia Outreach Services). Congratulations and best wishes, and to all, a blessed, happy, prosperous and peaceful New Year!
