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 entertainment coordinator.  

Our thanks to our founders and Past President, Dee Christ, and her late husband Christ, for their dedication to make 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 Elaine Beck.  

Annual membership dues are $35/person.  Our door is always open, and we look forward to welcoming new members. For more information, contact the current President, Olga Kalis (
