$100,000 GIFT FROM NATIONAL FORUM OF CHURCH MUSICIANS TO HC/HC LIBRARY

New York, NY - His Eminence Archbishop Spyridon, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, announced at the Fall meeting of the Archdiocesan Council on September 26th, a gift of $100,000 from the National Forum of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians for the Archbishop Iakovos Library and Learning Center at HC/HC, Brookline, MA.

Dr. Vickie Pappas, President of the National Forum and a member of the Archdiocesan Council, in making the presentation to His Eminence indicated that the money had been raised from individual church musicians, through special trays in the parishes and through the Ladies Philoptochos Society, for a liturgical music room at the Library.

In expressing his warm appreciation to all the members of the National Forum, His Eminence said that the Library had opened as of September 9th and is functioning, although work remains to be done. It is expected that the official opening will be held in the Spring.
