Dear members and friends of the Federation,

May the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ bring to you and your families lots of blessings, health, and love!

As we will be celebrating Christougenna and the 12 days of Christmas, let’s:

Give the care to the sick and the hungry, to the poor and the persecuted out of His kindness.
Respect our Greek Orthodox Heritage by being united under the umbrella of the Hellenic ideals and diachronic values trying to pass them on to the younger generations!
Embrace the spirit of Christmas and strive to keep it alive throughout the New Year!
Experience the giving and sharing of the season in our hearts, as Christmas is the best hymn to the brotherhood (Φιλαδέλφεια) of man and God’s greatest love for all mankind!
Keep our wonderful customs and traditions by showing them not only to our children but also to our neighbors who don’t have the same descent with us.

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill among men. (Δόξα εν υψίστοις Θεώ καὶ επὶ γης ειρήνη εν ανθρώποις ευδοκία).

Best wishes for a blessed Christmas and a healthy, prosperous New Year!

Respectfully,

Nikolaos (Nick) Spiliotis
President
