The President, the Executive Council, the elected members of the Board and the members of the Philoptochos sisterhood of Saint Barbara work in conjunction with the Pastor and the Council to assist those in need. They contribute to many worthy causes including the Adopt-A-Family Foundation, Clothing Drives, the cause for Breast Cancer Awareness, Cancer research and donating for many Archdiocesan institutions (such as Saint Michael's Home for the Elderly, Saint Basil's Academy, the Patriarchate and Holy Cross School of Theology). They also help families facing significant financial difficulties and children, who need assistance, through the Greek Children's Fund, Schneider's Children's Hospital and other organizations. They also have incorporated young volunteers (the Agape group) to assist with those ministries. Significant events include the Breast Awareness month and collections in October, the October dinner at the Church Hall, the Christmas Social, the Bake Sales, running a large booth at the Festival and the Annual Dinner Dance and Fashion Night.
The sisterhood works together with Father and the Parish Council to promote philanthropy in the Parish and assist those among us who suffer emotionally, financially or spiritually.
