National Organization History
The Greek Orthodox Retired Clergy Association was started by a group of farsighted retired priests who felt that even though they had retired from active duty, they still could be useful to the Church they served and loved. In 1988, Fathers John C. Zanetos, Demosthenes Mekras, Emmanual Bouyoucas, Dean Timothy Andrews, and George Papadeas joined together to form the first Board of Trustees of the Retired Clergy Association. They immediately incorporated in the State of Florida. From a handful of retirees, the association grew to over 200 members.
