INFORMATION SERVICES

The Agape Service of Easter Sunday in the Greek Orthodox Church is notable for the many languages which are heard.  In that respect this Sunday at the Church of the Transfiguration in Anchorage will not differ from any other. Services there are primarily in English with some Greek, but the Lord’s Prayer is recited in Greek, Arabic, Armenian, Romanian, Ukrainian, French, English and sometimes other languages.

The parish has an active Philoptochos, Sunday School, Greek School, and other youth dance groups besides the Stars. The parish also operates the popular Alaska Greek Festival each August – but the annual Greek Parade is also a community highlight.

If you thought it was a little too chilly standing outside in all those Greek parades last month, tell it to the Greeks of Alaska.  The annual Greek Gala is set to take place in Anchorage on May 2, to benefit the Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church there, which is the Northernmost Greek Orthodox church in the nation. The event will feature entertainment by the dance group “Stars of the North,” which consists of 30 children who have won multiple awards in national competitions over the years.
