Metropolitan Methodios and BC Students Help Pavlo Celebrate 6th Birthday
Pavlos, a little boy with big beautiful eyes from Cyprus who is being treated at Children's Hospital, celebrated his 6th birthday on Friday, October 29 with his Philoxenia House family. Pavlo and those attending the festive gathering were pleased to see His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios who surprised them and joined them in the celebration. The party was also attended by Boston College Hellenic Society students who visit the Philoxenia House regularly and enjoy interacting with the residents. The BC students brought Pavlo a big decorated birthday cake which they made. The party also featured balloons, pizza and many other goodies.
Metropolitan Methodios enjoyed talking with Pavlos and the two other young children there---Maria,3, from Hania, Crete, and Kostantinos, 15 months, from Athens---who are also being treated in area hospitals, as well as with the adults who are staying in this Greek Orthodox Home of Hope.
