Archbishop Elpidophoros of America thanks Greek government for donation to Boston’s Hellenic College Holy Cross
Archbishop Elpidophoros of America thanked the Greek government for its 2mln euro annual donation to the Hellenic College Holy Cross (HCHC) in Boston, the accredited Orthodox Christian college, school of theology and seminary in the US, in a post on social media on Friday.
On Twitter, the Archbishop wrote in English: «With the tremendous generosity of the Hellenic Republic to HCHC Boston, I am delighted to host Ambassador Alexandra Papadopoulou on the campus today and share with her and the People of Greece the progress at our premier institution in America.»
The donation was presented by Greek Ambassador to the US Alexandra Papadopoulou during her visit to the college on Friday and the lunch held by HCHC to honor both her and Archbishop Elpidophoros.
The donation to HCHC was an initiative of former Deputy Minister for Diaspora Greeks Antonis Diamataris and is provided on an annual basis to support the college.
As the Archbishop of America pointed out in statements «this is a significant investment of mother Greece to her children in the Diaspora, which shows the spiritual, national and linguistic ties between us.»
