Bishop Demetrios Offers Opening Prayer

On the morning of August 3, 2009, His Grace Bishop Demetrios of Mokissos was honored to attend the annual interfaith breakfast at U.S. Cellular Field in an effort to support the Chicago Public Schools and Chicago Department of Family and Support Services “Back-to-School Campaign”.

Bishop Demetrios offered the Morning Prayer in front of a multitude of religious leaders, city employees, educators and parents. His Grace was privileged to be asked to introduce and provide the audience with the many accomplishments of the Chief Executive Officer of Chicago Public Schools, Ron Huberman.

This campaign is geared toward making certain that students attend the first day of school with hopes that they continue to attend class everyday. The cooperative efforts of the Greek Metropolis of Chicago to ensure that children receive the education that they deserve were shown to the city of Chicago this morning by the presence of His Grace Bishop Demetrios under the direction of His Eminence Metropolitan Iakovos.
