              V      acation Bible School was a
               wonderful week filled with happy
               children, God’s teachings and special
fellowship! Fr. Anthony, Fr. Nick and Fr. Gregory
taught the children each morning in the chapel
about the “Creatures of God’s Creation.” We thank
them for their loving guidance and for this special
time they shared with all of us. It is truly a blessing
to everyone. We would also like to acknowledge
our wonderful volunteer teachers Lindsey Alexiou,
Evangeline Pittman, who was helped by her sister,
Carrinicole Pittman, Sandra Pleasant, Stephanie
Christ and MaryAnn Trapalis. They greeted the
children each day with a smile, taught them the
special stories from the bible, and led them
through crafts, snacks (thanks to Mary Campbell –
our snack coordinator!) and playtime each day.

Reverend Anthony Savas, Proistamenos
The Esteemed Parish Council
Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church
13555 Hillcrest Road
Dallas, Texas 75240

Beloved in the Lord,

    With this letter I herby appoint your priest, Father Anthony Savas, as the
Proistamenos of your beloved parish, now that he holds the rank of Economos in the
Metropolis.
     I am convinced that you, and the parishioners in general, believe that Father Savas
has been serving the parish in a most conscientious manner. I am truly pleased with
the progress of the parish and its many Christ-centered programs.
      Above all, I am grateful to Father Nicholas Katinas who has truly exemplified a
spirit of humility when he stepped down from his position of proistamenos four years
ago, after more than twenty-five years as proistamenos. His fatherly demeanor toward
Father Savas and the other clergy of the parish has been filled with his continued love
for the parish and for his fellow clergymen. This is a rare quality with priests who have
been pastors for most of their priestly ministry. He is to be admired and honored for
having such a priestly character.
    Father Savas has learned much from Father Katinas, and I know that he will
continue to do the fine work which he has done thus far. I am certain that he will
continue to seek the guidance of Father Katinas whenever something presents itself
which needs special attention, as he serves the needs of all the people.
     I commend all of you for your wise leadership, as servant-leaders of our Lord and
His people, and also for your personal sacrifice of time and talents in serving the needs
and the high purposes of our holy faith in your blessed parish of the Holy Trinity.


                                              With Paternal Blessings,




                                               Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver

   Dear Parishioners of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church,
       As I sit here in my office at HTA amidst boxes and files I am purging,
   I realize this is the last Ekfonesis article I will write and feel nostalgic.                 Holy Trinity Academy
   June is a bittersweet month for me. I will be closing on my house at the
   end of the month, packing the remains of my life in Dallas and moving to
                                                                                               2004-05 School Year
   Wichita Falls -- excited to be in the same city as my fiancée. The feelings             Pre-School (by September 1)
   I have about leaving HTA are quite the opposite.                                        M-W-F           8:30 am - noon

       Upon announcing my plans to move due to my engagement to a                          Pre-Kindergarten
   wonderful man, many have come up to me to ask how I can leave “my                       M–F             8:30 am - noon
   baby”? Although I will not be involved in the day-to-day operations of                  Kindergarten through 4th Grade
   Holy Trinity Academy, it will always be “my baby”. I gave my heart and                  M–F             8:30 am to 3:30 pm
   soul to Fr. Nick’s dream and did exactly what I set out to do -- get the
   school off the ground. I leave “my baby” in strong and competent hands.                      ~ Extended Day Program ~
   After working side-by-side with Dr. Bayouth the Monday after Family Fun                    Pre-School & Pre-Kindergarten
   Day, I understand and appreciate her vision to make HTA succeed. I                                (noon to 3:30 pm)
   thank all of you who supported me, but more importantly who supported                      ~ Before School/After School ~
   and will continue to support the success of HTA. With the continued                        Before school drop-off 7:30 am
