Light the Path – A Christmas Luncheon

For several years, the “Holiday Brunch” a fundraising event was held in Northern California to assist in fulfilling our mission.  In 2009, a second fundraiser was established in Southern California, in an ongoing effort to increase much needed funding for the ministry.

In 2011, the BAPSAEF fundraising program was enhanced and the Light the Path:A Christmas Luncheon was established.  Light the Path: A Christmas Luncheon is held annually in Northern and Southern California. All proceeds from these events directly support seminarians and students attending Hellenic College/Holy Cross in Brookline, MA.

Thank you to all that so generously support the Bishop Anthony Philoptochos Student Aid Endowment Fund, you help keep the vision alive.  Special thank you to Resurrection Church in Castro Valley, CA and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Long Beach, CA for graciously hosting  Light the Path – A Christmas Luncheon  in 2016.  For a complete gallery of event pictures, please visit and follow us on Facebook.
