We hope that this letter finds you all well. May your heart and home be filled with health, peace, love and happiness throughout the Year 2021. We begin the year with our 2021 Assumption Ladies Philoptochos stewardship/membership drive and take this opportunity to ask you to renew your membership in your Chapter Philoptochos. If you are not currently a member, please consider joining this year. We welcome ladies 18 years and older to join our chapter. We have many young ladies that have joined and we are delighted that they will continue in this wonderful ministry that we all love so much.
Our Philoptochos has a suggested stewardship of $35 or whatever you would like to contribute. Please know $15 of your donation goes directly to National Philoptochos Society and $8 of your donation goes to The District Archdiocese Philoptochos. Attached, as well, is the Mission Statement of the Philoptochos Ministry, which best represents Philoptochos, in the hopes that you will be inspired by the “good works” the society. The form will also be available downstairs in our fellowship hall. Checks should be made payable to: Ladies Philoptochos Society and mailed to:

WHAT YOU CAN DO:
To ensure the highest level of care and daily living for residents, becoming involved in our mission can enhance the care received and contribute to a greater quality of life for the residents of the facility. From volunteering your time and talents, visiting the residents, or making a donation, the Home welcomes the community and thanks our supporters for helping us with our sacred mission. Your support can make a significant impact on our ability to continue providing the highest quality care. In the near future, we look forward to increasing the number of elderly we can service and increasing the level of care we can provide. We believe strongly in respecting our elders by building an establishment that is worthy of our rich heritage, one that views caring for the elderly as an honorable privilege and not an obligation.
