Our Story

Our Community welcomes all of you to St. Demetrios Church, which has been serving Eastern Orthodox Christians in the Tri-County area since 1959. At that time, the initial founders could not have imagined that the little community they started would grow to this extent, and through its many ministries would meet the spiritual needs of many communicants of the area and of many visitors.



Clergy and Staff

The Priest, as the servant/leader, oversees the entire life of our Church with the Parish Council and with the support and efforts of all who volunteer, assist, and labor for our Parish.
Our Staff, assist in the everyday function of our Church with the support and guidance of the Clergy through administrative, accounting, and stewardship tasks.



The Parish Council

The Parish Council, under the guidance of the Priest, is the body that manages and oversees all operations of the Church and Parish Community. Its duties include: administering the Parish’s operating procedures, business concerns, and fund-raising activities.



Ladies Philoptochos

Philoptochos is a nationally chartered women’s organization promoting charitable, benevolent and philanthropic outreach on an international, national, and local level.




St. Demetrios has many ministries for both our parish and the greater Ft. Lauderdale community. Our programs include but are not limited to: Sunday School, Adult Education, Adult Dance, Loving Stitches, and Visiting Angels.



Our Community

Our Community reaches into the greater Fort Lauderdale area by reaching out to those in needs through other the organizations of St. Demetrios.




Stewardship is above all being a steward of the Word of God through a relationship among all those who make up the “Body of Christ” in the area served by Church of St. Demetrios.
