International Archons Committee
The critical task of this committee will be to help develop separate organizational structures for the Archons in Europe, South America, Asia, Africa and Australia and to assist in the creation of mission oriented Orders. Because some of these areas have their own Archon organizations (i.e., Greece has Pammakaristos), the committee’s task in these cases would be to coordinate working with these groups rather than organizing a new group of Archons.
If you are an Archon and want to become involved in the Archon Engagement Committees, please contact Archon Stephen A. Georgeson, Chair.

Judge Chrones states that he wishes to pay back to the Ecumenical Patriarchate the beneficence afforded years ago by the Ecumenical Patriarchate to his late father-in-law, Nikolaos Karnezos, who was born in Imbros. The Patriarchate paid for his father-in-law’s education, leading to a degree in physics from the University of Athens.
Judge Chrones and his wife have established a scholarship fund, in Mr. Karnezos’ name, for the benefit of the Patriarchate to educate young people. Thus far, $100,000 has been sent to the Patriarchate. Judge Chrones also has organized many fundraising events for the ministries of the Chicago Metropolis.
