Agion Oros and its relevance in today’s society

Mount Athos

This exciting event will be the St. Katherine Men’s Club next event on December 12, 2013.  It will begin with the famous CBS 60 Minutes video narrated by Bob Simon and entitled “Mount Athos.”  There will be a panel discussion immediately following the video presentation.

The participants will be Father Modestos (Abbott of the Panagia Vlahernon Greek Orthodox Monastery in Williston-FL), Theodosi Palis (Psalti / Chantor, Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, Fort Myers, FL).  Mr. Palis has spent considerable time  visiting Mt. Athos for many years, our own Dr. George Daravingas, and our Proistamenos, Father Philemon Patitsas.   Fr. Philemon will serve as a participant and moderator.

Each panelist will make remarks relative to their visits and experiences at Mount Athos.  There will follow a Q&A for audience participation. We feel that this will be an evening filled with insight and spirituality.

This event will take place at 7:30 pm at the Parish Cultural Hall of St. Katherine Greek Orthodox Church on Thursday, December 12, 2013.  This event is open to the public and is sponsored by the St. Katherine Men’s Club.

Editors Note:  The event was a huge success attracting close to 80 attendees!
