Today, Friday, January 12, 2024, His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America met with the newly appointed Director of Parish Planned Giving, Melpomeni “Melpo” Murdakes. The goal of the Parish Planned Giving Ministry is to support our parishes in their planned giving efforts through education and practical resources for soliciting, receiving and stewarding of planned gifts. The program will benefit parishes directly, making them more financially viable. This Planned Giving ministry will be implemented in close coordination with the Department of Stewardship, Outreach and Evangelism.
