Parish Council Ministry
The Parish Council is the administrative body of the Church community elected by its stewards for the purpose of working together with the Parish Priest in fulfilling the mission and goals of the community. The members of the Parish Council have been elected to serve a special ministry which requires total love, loyalty and dedication to Christ and His Church.
A Bible Study is conducted every Thursday at 7:00 PM under the guidance of the parish priest.
Greek School / Ellinomathea
The St. Nectarios Greek School is one of the most successful language schools in Boston. St. Nectarios Church is also the only approved center in New England for the "Ellinomathea Exam" (a Greek Proficiency exam, recognized by the Greek Government). An active PTA supports the school's educational goals.
Sunday School is an active program at St. Nectarios Church. Classes start at the end of September until the end of May. Mrs. Sophie Donovan is the program's director.
Altar Boys Ministry
The word "acolyte" comes from the ancient Greek word "akoloutheo" meaning to follow. An acolyte, therefore, is one who follows and attends upon the Bishops, Priests, and Deacons in the service of the Church. He is given permission to serve in the Sanctuary for the sole purpose of ministering to the Priests during Divine Services. Please contact Fr. Vassilios if you would like to serve in the altar.
St. Nectarios has a dynamic youth group. GOYANs have classes every Sunday and meetings every Thursday at 7:00 PM. Tony Kariotis and Sassa Tselengidis are GOYA's advisors. JoAnne Kazis is the GOYA HS class Sunday School Teacher.
The Senior Citizens of our community have meetings at the Parish Library every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM.
St. Nectarios Philoptochos is a Ladies Charity group, supporting Philanthropic ministries of our Archdiocese and Metropolis and assisting the Parish Council in various community events.
Every MONDAY from 5 - 7:45 pm the Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church (62 Harvard Ave, Allston) has an "Open Door Ministry" which serves a free meal to those in the community who need it. They are always in need of help. Several of our parishioners volunteer at this ministry. Please contact Aaron Walker, the St. Nectarios coordinator if you wish to volunteer.
