HELLENIC COLLEGE HOLY CROSS 75th COMMENCEMENT

HONORS GEORGE LOGOTHETIS, FR. GEORGE POULOS

Brookline, Mass. – Hellenic College Holy Cross School of Theology graduated 52 students at its 75th commencement May 20, which also awarded an honorary doctorate of humanities to entrepreneur and philanthropist George Logothetis and an honorary doctorate of divinity to Fr. George Poulos, a 1948 graduate of Holy Cross Seminary in Pomfret, Conn.

Following the singing of the Greek and American national anthems by the Holy Cross St. Romanos the Melodist Byzantine Choir, school President Fr. Christopher Metropulos welcomed the hundreds of attendees. Greetings also were offered by National Philoptochos First Vice President Jeannie Ranglas and Archdiocesan Council Vice President and Leadership 100 Chairman George S. Tsandikos.

Mr. Logothetis is chairman and CEO of Libra Group, an international diverse company comprised of 30 subsidiaries in 35 countries on six continents.

Fr. Poulos, described as “legendary” by Archbishop Demetrios, is retried priest of Church of the Archangels in Stamford, Conn., where he actively served for 53 years and, at age 95, still continues to have office hours at the church.

Archbishop Demetrios concluded the commencement program, with exhortatory remarks highlighting three components of the school’s significance to the students: the educational, Faith and Hellenism facets.
