His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America will lead the celebration. Dr. Steven Gounardes is the chairman for this special 70th Celebration and Mike Emanuel, FOX News chief congressional correspondent will be the Master of Ceremonies.

The children of the Academy along with the Executive Director Rev. Constantine Sitaras and the members of the Board of Trustees led by its president Evellyn Tsiadis are preparing to welcome friends, supporters and visitors.

Saint Basil Academy is the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese home for children in need. It was established in 1944 to house orphaned children and later became a school to educate young Greek women to teach the Greek language in our parish communities. Today it is a safe haven for children within a nurturing and spiritual environment.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
