PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release:

ARCHBISHOP SPYRIDON STRESSES UNITY TO REPRESENTATIVE HELLENIC LEADERS

New York,NY - His Eminence Archbishop Spyridon, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, addressing a meeting of Hellenic American Leaders and Organizations (HALO) in Washington,DC on March 10th, called for a unity of purpose in their commitment to continue to labor together regarding religious freedom, human rights and all those unique religious and cultural issues which effect our community.

Noting, that since his enthronement as Archbishop in September of 1996, he has been impressed by the vitality and dynamism of the Greek American community, His Eminence added that he has made another observation: “ that we do not always move together as one community on issues that affect us all. As the spiritual father of this Greek American community,” he said, “I have called this meeting to encourage us to strive together toward single-mindedness regarding these very issues”.

In his closing statement to the Press, His Eminence said:” We are committed to providing a better future for our youth, for providing our children with a firm foundation upon which to build, and offering the best of our community to this great nation. I offer today my personal energy and desire to do anything in order to facilitate this unity, this love, and this common march for the good of all.”
