Tryphon Hall after Divine Liturgy by December 11th so that they can be distributed before Christmas.
 
We are asking our Highschool Goyans to volunteer their time to help teach and run the Angels Day Camp experience. If you are a Goyan or know one who would like to participate, we invite them to the Parish Ministry Night on November 2nd to learn the material for the Camp.

Hurricane Ian Update 5

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

 

We celebrated a wonderful Doxology and Divine Liturgy this evening to express our gratitude to Saint Nicholas and our Lord. For those unable to attend, we prayed for you and for those who are still struggling with the clean up efforts and those who are now in the path of destruction as the storm gains strength and heads for South Carolina. May God protect all those in the path of this storm. The storm has been catastrophic for so many south of us.

 

As life gets back to normal in Tarpon Springs, I wanted to update you on our ministries schedule. 

 

All services in the Cathedral will take place as scheduled.

 

The Young Adult Retreat scheduled to take place at St John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Tampa will take place as scheduled.

 

ALL OTHER MINISTRIES WILL CONTINUE as scheduled moving forward.

 

Since the storm was not as bad for Tarpon Springs as originally expected, the Cathedral Office will reopen Friday at 9am. The Cathedral is also open for prayer according to normal hours.

 

Finally, our Cathedral will establish a special relief fund for those suffering from the storm. You will be hearing more about that fund in the days and weeks to come. Needless to say, many will need our help. We were spared a serious storm, but others are suffering and need our help.

 

I look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday for Divine Liturgy at 9am. 

 

In Christ,

Fr Athanasios (this is the final Hurricane Ian Update)

Hurricane Ian Update 3

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

As we prepare for Hurricane Ian to make landfall south of Tampa Bay, we are thankful to God and Saint Nicholas for keeping us safe. That means, as we know, others are in danger of a serious Hurricane south of our city. Please continue to pray to Saint Nicholas for protection during the storm for ALL THOSE who are in the path of the storm.

 

Locally, we are expecting heavy winds and flooding. Please use caution and don't take any unnecessary risks.

 

Once the storm passes, we will work with our neighboring communities and help those who will see damage from this storm. I would ask you to prepare for special donations for our neighbors south. We will help in any way we can for those in need.

 

Stay tuned to your StNicholasTarpon App for urgent updates and any notifications throughout the storm. Remember, when it comes to nature, things can always change.

 

Offering constant prayers to Saint Nicholas,

 

Fr Athanasios

Hurricane Ian Update 2

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

This evening we offered a beautiful Paraklesis to St Nicholas in our Cathedral. Following the Paraklesis, Fr Theofanis, Mr Nikitas Manias and I went to Sunset Beach and blessed the Gulf of Mexico with Holy Water and the Icon of Saint Nicholas.

 

Since the storm is predicted to begin arriving in the area overnight tonight and tomorrow. At this time the Cathedral will remain closed for the duration of the storm. The services scheduled for tomorrow and Thursday are cancelled. We will reopen the Cathedral with a Doxology of Thanks once the storm passes.

 

ADDITIONAL CANCELLATIONS:

Taverna Night for the Greek Dance Ministry that was scheduled for Saturday is canceled. 

 

OFFICE REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL MONDAY - We will tentatively reopen the Cathedral Office on Monday.

 

Please take this storm seriously. It will be a strong storm by the time it passes by Tarpon Springs. The current tracking has the storm to our East. 

 

Remember to download the FREE StNicholasTarpon app to remain in connection during the storm. I am able to post via the app so long as I have cell coverage. Watch the listserv, Facebook our website, and the StNicholasTarpon App for updates.

 

St Nicholas intercede for us.

Fr Athanasios

Message for the Ecclesiastical New Year

September 21, 2022

To the Clergy and the Faithful of the Metropolis of Atlanta:

My Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

 

I greet you with love and joy in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

September 2022 marks one hundred years since the Asia Minor Catastrophe, and especially when the city of Smyrna was set on fire during the final stages of the Greco-Turkish War. During the 9 days the fire was allowed to burn (from September 13th to the 22nd) hundreds of thousands of Greek and Armenian citizens were forced to evacuate their homes. Living in these harsh conditions, many atrocities were committed against them by the Ottoman Army. Though no official totals exist, historians believe that up to 125,000 deaths were the final result of this terrible event, while millions more were forced to flee.

Therefore, remembering our responsibility as Orthodox Christians and Hellenes, I prayerfully request that a Trisagion be offered in all our communities on this Sunday, September 25th, 2022. In offering these special petitions, we honor the souls of those senselessly slaughtered because of their faith and heritage

May this Trisagion not only invoke God's blessings upon those victims, but strengthen our resolve to live as free people, worshipping our Lord and God in a peaceful society. I remain,

 Shape

Διάκονος: Ἔτι δεόμεθα ὑπὲρ μακαρίας μνήμης καὶ αἰωνίου ἀναπαύσεως πάντων τῶν ὑπό τῶν Τούρκων βαρβαρικῷ τῷ τρόπῳ ἀναιρεθέντων, ὡς καὶ πάντων τῶν βιαίως ἐκριζωθέντων ἐκ τῶν πατρογονικῶν αὐτῶν ἑστιῶν κατά τήν ἐν ἔτει 1922 Καταστροφήν εἰς Μικράν Ἀσίαν, καὶ ὑπέρ τοῦ συγχωρηθῆναι αὐτοῖς πᾶν πλημμέλημα ἑκούσιόν τε καὶ ἀκούσιον.
 
Deacon: Again we pray for the blessed memory and eternal rest of all those who heroically fought and fell for the defense of the faith and their ancestral homes during the barbaric attack, persecution and expulsion of the Greeks by the Turks in 1922 in Asia Minor; for all those who perished in any way and for the forgiveness of their sins, both voluntary and involuntary.

A Loved One Has Fallen Asleep in The Lord - George V. Faklis

George V. Faklis peacefully fell asleep surrounded by his family on Wednesday, March 2, 2022. George's loving family, wife of 58 years Katie, daughter Andrea Kopacz and her husband Joey and their daughter Kate, and his son Vasile Faklis and his wife Rena and their two sons, George and Kyriakos along with his brothers and sisters ( Fran and Tony Tulumaris and Theo Economos  who are waiting for him in heaven, Connie Economos, Anna Faklis, Nick and Anna Faklis, an Michael Faklis) and many friends and extended family will greatly miss him. George was a true gentleman in all facets of his life. He had a pure heart and led with quiet authority. According to his grandchildren, he was the best Papou ever. According to his children he was the best daddy ever. According to his wife he was the best husband ever. According to his friends and extended family, he was simply the best man ever.
George was born in Tarpon Springs on June 20, 1930, in his family home. He was the fourth child in a family of six children born to Vasile and Dikea Faklis. Although he was the fourth, he was the one that they all looked up to as the big brother. His gentle soul always made sure to take care of everyone.
George graduated from Tarpon Springs High School and attended college at the University of North Carolina Asheville, but in a time of need left to join the Navy and proudly served his country for four years. When he returned home, he went back to college and graduated with his Bachelor's Degree from the University of Tampa. He worked as a teacher for a few years, but his true passion lay with his family business Faklis' Department Store. He worked in his family owned business right until the very end. During the pandemic he continued working saying, "I am 91 years old. I am not just going to sit at home and do nothing. I am not afraid."
And, he was never afraid. He prayed to God and knew that God would always lead him in the right direction. He did not worry because he knew that God had a plan and that everything would work out the way it was supposed to be. He was a good and faithful servant.
George was a pillar of the community.
