In the spirit of the 8th century homilist, St. Germanos of Constantinople, the faithful gathered at Holy Cross Chapel to celebrate in an all night Vigil, the joyous Feast of the Annunciation of the Theotokos.

Let us, (all) peoples, tribes, and tongues, and every rank, as well as this feast-loving, loquacious assembly and the people who are gathered around, now celebrate spiritually and with joyful souls the radiant and supremely glorious commemoration of the present honorable and royal office, and let us with all zeal weave divine hymns for the queen who (was born of the race) of David. And let us establish a springtime feast of feasts and festivals for our hope, "on the famous day of our feast" (Ps 80 (81).4)

Repost Maliotis Cultural Center:“ In honor of Greek Independence Day, George Kalogeris, Associate Professor of English at Suffolk University, read his poetry at the Maliotis Cultural Center in an event sponsored by the Maliotis Cultural Center and the Department of Greek Studies at Hellenic College. Professor Kalogeris was introduced by Professor Stamatia Dova, Director of Classics and Greek Studies at Hellenic College. Kalogeris read poems that focused on his father’s village in the Peloponnese, Akovos, and its connection to one of the central figures of the revolution, General Theodoros Kolokotronis. He also read poems that explored theGreek-American experience of his parents in their corner grocery store in Winthrop, Massachusetts, and the multiplicity of ways in which historical trauma, such as the aftermath of World War Two, was conveyed to him though his family's oral tradition. The poet credited the rich opportunities for a budding writer afforded by growing up in a house that delighted in blending two languages, demotic Greek and English. A lively discussion followed the reading, including an elaboration on how an intricate poem emerged from a single vowel sound.

George Kalogeris’s most recent book of poems is Winthropos, (Louisiana State University, 2021). He is also the author of Guide to Greece (Louisiana State University, 2018), a book of paired poems in translation, Dialogos, and poems based on the notebooks of Albert Camus, Camus: Carnets. His poems and translations have been anthologized in Joining Music with Reason, chosen by Christopher Ricks (Waywiser, 2010). He is the winner of the James Dickey Poetry Prize.”
