Did You Know?

  • Since 1984, the Bishop Anthony Philoptochos Student Aid Endowment Fund has been visionary in its impact, providing much-needed financial support for the men and women from the Metropolis of San Francisco who are called to serve the Church.
  • Over the past decade alone, the Metropolis Philoptochos has contributed nearly $1.5 million to defray the educational expenses of our seminarians and students.
  • Philoptochos Chapters in our Metropolis also “adopt” our students, establishing a personal relationship with them through supportive messages, care packages and gifts.
  • Each year, members of the Metropolis Philoptochos Board travel to Brookline, MA to meet with the students and celebrate their achievements at the annual Hellenic College Holy Cross Commencement.
