Commemoration of the Fall of Constantinople
Χριστός Ἀνέστη Christ is Risen!
The Commemoration of the Fall of Constantinople
Tuesday, May 29, 2012
The Annual Commemoration of the ‘Fall of Constantinople’ presented by: The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago, The Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, The Hellenic Society of Constantinople and The Greek America Foundation, will be held on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 beginning at 7:00PM at the Chicago History Museum, 1601 North Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois.
This year’s observance will feature the premiere of a documentary film, Hello Anatolia about a young Greek American filmmaker who embarks on the journey of his life to Izmir (Smyrna), Turkey to trace the footsteps of his great grandparents in their native land. In his effort to strengthen his own connection to his cultural heritage, he becomes a bridge builder of two cultures – and two peoples – who share a lot more than they have that divides them.
The faithful of all communities and their families will enjoy this unique opportunity for cultural and spiritual enrichment on the 29th of May. DUE TO LIMITED SEATING CAPACITY, PLEASE RSVP TO THIS EVENT BY CALLING 312-733-4633 OR BY EMAIL INFO@GREEKAMERICA.ORG.
In the service of the Risen Lord,
