Senior Synaxis

Senior Synaxis is a ministry "for the young at heart" that includes social, cultural and religious activities bringing our "Senior" Stewards of the Ascension of Our Lord Church together in Orthodox Christian Fellowship.  The group meets monthly for various activities and outings, which are arranged by our special event coordinators.  

Our thanks to our founders and Past President, Dee Christ, and her late husband Christ, for their dedication in making this ministry a success for the senior group. Also, we extend our gratitude to past presidents Mary Kokinis and her late husband, John; and, to our late friend, Elaine Beck, who planned many of our wonderful outings over the past several years.  

Our door is always open, and we look forward to welcoming new members. For more information, contact the current Special Events planner, Kay James, @  



As our Senior Synaxis ministry kicks off the 2022-2023 Ecclesiastic Year of activities, the seniors would like to thank the Hellenic Foundation, on behalf of Fr. Sotiri and our Ascension Parish, for offering to reimburse up to $2,500 in bus travel expenses for their group outings this year through the Foundation’s Golden Circle Program!  The Hellenic Foundation developed the Golden Circle program to encourage socialization and fellowship among seniors, especially in the post-pandemic environment.  We are grateful to the Foundation and look forward to tapping into these funds to support wonderful fellowship opportunities this coming year.
