National Leadership 100 Sunday Observed In Parishes Across Country

Bulletin from Saint Sophia Cathedral, Washington, DC where Leadership 100 Chairman Emeritus Stephen G. Yeonas and members Jim and Ted Pedas hosted reception.

National Leadership 100 Sunday was observed in parishes across the country on October 25, 2015 with the reading of an Encyclical issued by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, on behalf of the Holy Eparchial Synod. It was the seventh observance, designated to be the Sunday nearest the Feast of Saint Iakovos in honor of the Founder of Leadership 100, Archbishop Iakovos. This year, it also fell one day prior to the Feast of Saint Demetrios.

 

Parish Priests throughout the nation read the Encyclical at the Divine Liturgy. Many parishes also held a program during the coffee hour coordinated by members of Leadership 100 to develop awareness of the support provided by Leadership 100 for the critical ministries of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, as well as for ministries in every Metropolis.

 

Ted Zampetis of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, a prominent business leader and a member of the Executive Committee of Leadership 100, served as Chairman of the observance for the fourth consecutive year. Zampetis also serves as Chairman of the Membership Committee. “National Leadership 100 Sunday again generated support for our mission and attracted new members, thanks to the commitment of Ted Zampetis,” said George S. Tsandikos, Leadership 100 Chairman.

 

Among the many parishes participating were: St. Katherine, Redondo Beach, CA; Saint Sophia Cathedral, Washington, DC; Assumption Church, Chicago, IL; St. George, Bethesda, MD; St. Nicholas, Troy, MI; Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, New York, NY: Church of Our Saviour, Rye, NY; Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas, Cincinnati, OH; Dormition of the Virgin Mary, Winchester, VA; and St. John the Divine, Wheeling, WV, which, in addition to the program, initiated a “second tray collection for Leadership 100.”

 

Today, Leadership 100 counts some 976 members from a broad spectrum of Greek Orthodox leaders, men and women of all ages from every field of endeavor, including Leadership 100 Partners. Over three decades, more than $42 million in grants has been disbursed to support the National Ministries and institutions of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and the Metropolises, as well as other programs and projects advancing Orthodoxy and Hellenism and meeting human need in the nation and around the world.
