Pentecost, Troparion, Tone VIII —
Blessed art Thou, Christ our God, Who didst make the fishermen wise by sending down upon them the Holy Spirit, and through them didst draw the world into Thy net. Lover of men, glory to Thee.
Kontakion, Tone VIII —
When the Most High came down and confused the tongues, He divided the nations, but when He distributed the tongues of fire, He called all to unity. And with one accord we glorify the All-Holy Spirit.

The Greek-American Historical Museum of Washington State
The University or Washington has the honor of a short visit by two members of a team of experts Dr. Yannis Maniatis and Laura Wynn-Antikas who have been re-examining the remains in the Great Tumulus at Vergina since 2010. Their study is part of a broader scientific research program that is re-examining results of earlier surveys with medical and physical-chemical methods. One result will be a database available to the international scientific community.
The findings were first presented at the Archaeological Conference of Archaeological Study in Macedonia and Thrace during 2013 held at the University of Thessaloniki in mid-March. The press release of the team’s presentation began with the words “New evidence about the deceased of the royal tomb II at Vergina. Everything points to Philip II and a female warrior.” The identity of those buried with a great wealth of possessions has been debated since the opening of the tomb in 1977.
They will participate in the International Symposium on Archaeometry at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles and they will be in Seattle following that symposium from May 25th to the morning of May 28th to share their findings. Dr. Maniatis is Research Director of the National Centre for Scientific Research “Demokritos” and head of the Centre’s Laboratory of Archaeometry as well as Coordinator of its Archaeometry Program of the Institute of Materials science.The formal presentation will be on Tuesday evening May 27th beginning at 7:00 in Smith Hall, Room 205, on the University of Washington campus. Both team members will be available for conversations following the presentation.
The Hellenic American Cultural Center and Museum (FB) Presents: The Metamorphasis of Karaghiozis!
Karagiozis -Who???- The indomitable Karagiozis will perform ….. Karagiozis is not quite as good looking as Superman, nor can he fly, he is not rich like Batman/Bruce Wayne. And he has no superpowers. But he does have an indomitable Greek Will, Cunning and a very loooonnng– arm. He is the hero of the Shadow puppet theatre. With his hunchback, extra long—arm and his conniving brain he sometimes thwarts the powers that try to keep a man down (usually the Turks), but alas often winds up beaten for his antics.
