Philoxenia House Announcement
I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude for your gracious support of the Philoxenia House of our Metropolis which has welcomed countless brethren from throughout the world since it was founded in June 1986. As we approach the joyous feast of Easter, many individuals and groups are planning to visit the Philoxenia House. Respecting the privacy of our guests, I kindly as that you call my office at 617-277-4742 before scheduling your visit.
The Philoxenia House, founded in 1986, is the centerpiece of the Philanthropic Ministry of the Metropolis of Boston.
The Philoxenia House opens its embrace to people who find themselves in Boston for medical reasons. The Resident Guests travel from throughout the world to this “home away from home” primarily from Greece and Cyprus, but also from Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Albania, as well as America. The common language of the Philoxenia House is the language of love, understanding, kindness and compassion. Patients are infants, children, young adults, senior citizens and everyone in between. They are premature babies who are blind, adults and youngsters suffering from cancer, transplant patients, and burn victims.
Thanks to the very generous support of the donors, volunteers, and visitors from our local parishes, such as Ladies Philoptochos Societies, GOYA groups and national charitable organizations the Philoxenia House is able to continue opening its embrace to those in need.
