Metropolitan Methodios presides at the Agiasmos Service for the beginning of the new academic year at the Hellenic American Academy of Lowell

Hellenic American Academy founded in 1906 by Greek immigrants is currently the oldest and longest running Greek American Orthodox day school in the United States. The Academy continues to provide a safe and nurturing family environment that challenges students to achieve their highest level of academic performance, stimulate intellectual curiosity and develop personal growth and responsibility. The Orthodox Christian faith and practicing philanthropy and growth on a personal and academic level are the values that they base their foundation on.

Today, they welcome students of many cultural and faith backgrounds. They provide academic excellence, a positive attitude towards education, and assist in becoming independent and self-sufficient.

At today's Agiasmos Service, His Eminence introduced Fr. Anastasios Coulouras who graduated from the 5th grade from the Hellenic American Academy in 1939. Also present for the service was Fr. Nikolaos Pelekoudas of the Holy Trinity Church and Fr. Peter Rios of the St. George Church both of Lowell,MA, and the Chancellor of the Metropolis, Fr. Theodore Barbas.
