ON MARCH 7, 2021 THERE WAS AN INITIATION of six (6) Brothers at our AHEPA Lodge room of the Cathedral of the Annunciation.
Following the the Divine Liturgy services, several officers and members of Worthington Ch. 30 assembled to perform the initiation ceremony on 6 new initiates. Note that Brother Mike Baglanis, who last year was unable to have his formal initiation due to COVID-19, was included with five new Brothers who had all been through the application / vetting process and whose bio’s are shown further below.
We were also visited by the AHEPA Supreme President, Brother George Horiates and the Executive Director, Brother Basil Mossaidis, who participated in the initiation ceremony as well.
