Welcome to the St. Panteleimon Health Care Society of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Detroit
Welcome to the St. Panteleimon Health Care Society of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Detroit. The society is for health care and mental health care providers of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Detroit (e.g., doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, psychologists, etc).
Throughout the history of Christianity, the Church has cared for those in need. The Roman Emperor Julian, a pagan, lamented the spread of Christianity because of the ‘kindness of Christians to strangers.’
Much great work has been done throughout our Metropolis, largely organized by Philoptochos. But there is still more to do. The St. Panteleimon Health Care Society seeks to encourage health care providers to prayerfully pursue opportunities to serve Christ and the Church by serving those in need.
How we serve.
We not only want to encourage parishioners to increase engagement in their communities but also to offer opportunities for spiritual growth and nourishment. Our metropolis is geographically challenging. As Orthodox Christians in the United States we are often islands within our cities. The society website will allow greater and timely exchange of ideas by parishioners as well as online seminars.

Please consider joining us so that as a metropolis we can apply our education to share the love of Christ. Our goal is that through this society and other organizations our metropolis would be known as “The Metropolis of Mercy.”
