Letter from the President
November 22, 2016
Dear Alumni of HCHC,
What a joy it has been these past few months to serve with the officers and members of our Hellenic Collge Holy Cross Alumni Board! I am also so pleased to greet you all, to share our witness in the Faith. It is wonderful how we can always come back home again to our beloved School!
I want to say THANK YOU!
THANK YOU to each and everyone of you, my fellow alumni, for being a graduate of this beautiful school! Our Lord’s Church becomes stronger each year as students complete their studies in the undergraduate and graduate programs, and are ready to get invovled, and to hopefully serve with the same kind of attitude our Lord had when He knelt to wash the feet of His disciples.
As you know, servant ministry is needed desperately in any parish today that is going to have a positive impact on the community God has established. I THANK YOU, each and everyone of you, for being a part of Servant Ministry, whether you are a Parish Priest, Assistant Priest, Pastoral Assistant, Youth Director, Religious Ed. Teacher, Choir Director, Chanter, Coach, Custodian – whether full time, part time, or not having a paid position but giving your stewardship to our Lord and His Church. THANK YOU!
I would like you to consider the possiblity of sharing your personal testimony with our HCHC Alumni Family if you are open to doing so. Often, when people hear someone else reflect on their blessings and are informed how they are helping to bring all closer to Christ, this in fact can become a source of increasing faith to us all and ignite a flame that can never be blown out.
Finally, I ask that we all join in prayer on a daily basis by saying this petition, which is prayed daily in the Holy Cross Chapel, “for this Sacred School, the president, deans, faculty, staff and students, the trustees, benefactors and alumni, let us pray to the Lord.”
Lord, have mercy!
Fr. Demetri Costarakis
President, HCHC Alumni Association
