Philoptochos – The word Philoptochos translates into “Friend of the Poor.”
The Ladies Philoptochos Society of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church, Macon, is more than an organization. It's a sisterhood of women devoted to serving God as He leads in supporting charitable and philanthropic causes in Middle Georgia, throughout America, and locations worldwide. By banding together in prayer in committment, the Ladies of Philoptochos raise funds that help feed, clothe, and shelter the needy. Ours is a mission of service, rooted in Jesus' command to love one another. We do so in humility and love, forming a small, but formidable army of spiritual grace in action.
