BROOKLINE, MA— The Office of Admissions at Hellenic College Holy Cross is pleased to announce its Spring Break Tour to eastern Pennsylvania from March 9-18, 2018.

Hellenic College Holy Cross serves as the educational and spiritual formation center of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, preparing both women and men for leadership roles in the Church, their chosen professions, and society. The beautiful 52-acre campus, located just minutes away from downtown Boston, is home to an exceptional student body. As the premier Orthodox Christian institution of higher learning, HCHC cultivates the intellectual, spiritual, and moral development of its students by its commitment to education, faith, and service.  

Spring Break Tour:
Rev. Fr. Christopher Metropulos, HCHC’s President, says, “While all are welcome and encouraged to visit the Holy Hill and see in person all of the elements that make our school unique, we also like to take the school and its message on the road and engage with our young people in their home parishes.” To that end, Rev. Fr. Gregory Floor, Director of Admissions, and nine students representing both the college and the school of theology will travel to more than ten Orthodox parishes in eastern Pennsylvania, offering youth and young adult ministry while sharing their experiences as students at America’s premier Orthodox Christian college, graduate school of theology, and seminary. The team will also be telling prospective students and their parents about HCHC’s new educational and extracurricular opportunities, including a partnership with Newbury College for Division III athletics.
