 Philoptochos is a national Greek Orthodox women’s organization established 80 years ago to work through the parishes of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese to assist those in need. Its expanded mission is to preserve and perpetuate Orthodox Christian concepts and the Orthodox Christian Family, and through them to promote the Greek Orthodox Faith and traditions.

For over 40 years, St. Irene’s Philoptochos of Lexington has worked to assist those in need at the national, metropolis and local levels. We are also available to assist our beloved St. Nicholas Church community when we can. All women in our church over the age of 18 are invited to become stewards of Philoptochos.

Our Philoptochos chapter raises funds throughout the year to support 19 National Philoptochos commitments and three Metropolis of Boston Philoptochos commitments. St. Irene’s Philoptochos has also contributed to the needs of St. Nicholas Church, and local charities including the Hellenic Women’s Benevolent Association Radiothon, the Lexington Food Pantry, Project Bread, REACH, as well as others.

We believe in the strong values of faith and family and can be counted on to provide hands and heart to our parish whenever needed.  If you are interested in supporting our causes, please consider joining St. Irene’s Philoptochos.
