His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos
of San Francisco

The Metropolis of San Francisco Philoptochos is a dynamic group of women whose support and love for those in need has made a difference in thousands of lives throughout their distinguished history. Their ministry has been indispensable in their service to our parishes and to our Metropolis, and I am grateful for their faithfulness and commitment to serving others. Philoptochos is an integral part of work in teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we are blessed to have them as partners in our ministry.
With Love in Christ,

Dear Sisters in Christ,

Welcome to the Metropolis of San Francisco Philoptochos website. We have developed this as a resource for our 58 chapters and over 4,000 members so that we can improve our communication, share ideas and enrich our collective ministry to serve those who are in need of our love, care and compassion.

Your Metropolis Philoptochos Board is here to serve you and we encourage your ongoing support and participation in the important work of Philoptochos. Throughout the year we have many opportunities for fellowship, education, outreach and philanthropy. We are celebrating almost 90 years of Philanthropy. The noble women of Philoptochos for many generations worked to feed the hungry, heal the infirm, visit the weary, assist the needy and offer kindness to the poor. Philoptochos: Invite, Embrace, Involve – simply one woman asking another woman to care. It is with strength in our Faith, Hope in our abilities to do Good Works and Love for one another that we exemplify true philanthropy.

Your Sister in Christ,
Jeannie Ranglas
President
