Serving in the altar is an honor and privilege for the young boys of St. Spyridon. Currently, fifty altar boys, ages seven to seventeen, are divided into three groups led by group captains. From a young age, St. Spyridon’s Altar Boys take their responsibility of serving our Lord very seriously. They are mentored by the older boys to learn their duties for the various liturgical services. The boys meet monthly to discuss and learn more about their altar responsibilities and then conclude with a special lunch or snacks. Over the years, many of our young men have heeded the calling to serve our Lord in the priesthood. They include: Fr. Peter Spiro, currently of Holy Trinity in Nashville, TN, Fr. Aristidis Garinis who is serving at St. Nicholas in Flushing, NY, Fr. Christos Mihalopoulos, currently of St. Nektarios in Palatine, IL , and Fr. Nicholas Mataragas serving at Holy Trinity, Waterbury, CT. The altar boy advisors are Labros Malfas and Zachary Chibucos.
