“We will have free Greek Language and Culture School Lessons for the youth of the Transfiguration of Christ Church in Mattituck, L.I.,” said Rev. Dionysios Marketos on Sunday, June 20th in the church hall. “All children are invited to come and learn about their Greek roots.” The Greek Language and Culture School recited Greek poems. Mr. Andreas Markakis, School Board member and former Parish Council President, awarded every student with a $200 bond in memory of his late son, George Markakis.
The Fathers of the community were honored for their unique contribution in perpetuating Hellenism on the North Fork. For further information, e-mail Rev. Dionysios Marketos at firstname.lastname@example.org or cal 917 295-3004.
