The Hellenic Society of Constantinople along with the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago and the Ecumenical Patriarchate Archons will be hosting the 40th Commemoration of the Fall of Constantinople on May 16th, 2021 at 4:30 pm. The event will be a virtual live town meeting. Details can be found on the flyer below.
The Hellenic Society of Constantinople is a non for profit 501 (c) (3) organization founded in 1939. It was one of the first Societies created in the United States to perpetuate the vast contributions made by the Byzantines, and to preserve the remaining Greek Orthodox churches and nursing home in Constantinople. Today, the Society also provides scholarships to students of Greek descent based on merit, and donates to worthy philanthropic causes in the United States. The Society commemorates the Fall of Constantinople annually and, in keeping with our mission to support the religious freedoms of all minorities in Asia Minor and abroad, we support the Patriarchate in Istanbul.
