Women's History Month Highlight: Vivian Dehner, Accountant & Bookkeeper at the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society

March is International Women’s History Month, and it would only be proper to celebrate it by honoring the women of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. We want to showcase the wonderful women who work for our beloved Archdiocese and its Affiliated Institutions this March to celebrate their contributions and the talents they bring to our Church. This first week we present the resilient women of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society.

What is the role of faith in my life? 

We walk by faith, not by sight. From the time I was a young child, faith has been part of my life. Faith has instilled a sense of purpose, meaning and hope in my life for I know that the Lord is always with me. Faith is a source of comfort, strength, and guidance to me as I navigate the often-choppy waters of life.
