The Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting - Newsletter 2004
Scouter Niki Krause and Eagle Scout Father John
Memorich of the Cleveland/Akron area have embarked on
a program to contact the 26 Eastern Orthodox Parishes in
the area to establish a Scout liaison person in each parish.
The purpose is to create an EOCS Greater Cleveland area
committee, whose mission is to provide the area's
Orthodox Scouts with opportunities to come together
several times a year:
Earn Eastern Orthodox Religious Awards via
regularly-scheduled workshops
Participate in community-service efforts with
fellow Orthodox Scouts
To hold several Orthodox Scout Retreats and /or
Outreach Coordinator, Lenny Cook of St. Louis, MO has
been very helpful in assisting them in this project, since he
has organized and held six successful Orthodox Scout
Retreats/Camporees, in the St. Louis area. Niki Krause
can be contacted via email

The EOCS encourages other areas to hold Orthodox
Scout Retreat's/Camporees. You do not need large
numbers, but once you start it will grow and it is very
rewarding. Information is available from the EOCS
Annually, for the past twelve years the Eastern Orthodox
Committee on Scouting has presented two scholarships,
one for $1,000 and the runner up for $500.
The eligibility requirements are:

the Gold award for Girls

Church and have earned the Alpha Omega
Religious Scout Award

church, school, Scouting, and community
Be enrolled in an accredited US high school and
in their final year

application; one letter on letterhead from leaders

school, community leader, and head of Scouting
Starting in 2005, The Russian Children's Welfare Society,
Inc., has funded an additional scholarship for $1,000 for a
Scout who is of Russian descent and meets the above
eligibility requirements. The EOCS Scholarship
Committee awards the three scholarships to the recipients
who best meet the qualifications and not on a "need" basis.
The first place winner, Michael J. Lingos, of Closter, New
Jersey, is attending Columbia University in New York City
and is majoring in pre-law. He is a member of The
Cathedral of St. John The Theologian, Tenafly, New
The runner up, Christos N. Theophanovs of Lafayette,
California, is attending Harvard University in Cambridge,
Massachusetts and is majoring in Biology. He is a
member of St. Demetrios Orthodox Church in Concord,
California. Christos is the second EOCS Scholarship
recipient from his family. His brother Georgios received
first place two years ago and is also attending Harvard.
The selection committee was very pleased with the number
of qualified applicants that came from throughout the
United States. Both of these winners had an outstanding
service to their parish and community, along with deep
involvement and participation in high school activities.
The individual Scouting records and leadership abilities
along with their scholastic achievements made them
standout among all the applicants.
S. O. S.
The scholarship fund was established by contributions
from numerous contributors like you. Since the interest
rates have fallen the principle is not able to maintain the
annual scholarships with the present income. Therefore, in
order not to reach into the principle to continue the
scholarships, the committee is reaching out to you all to
assist. Therefore, we hope that you will give serious
consideration to this appeal. Your gift is indispensable in
helping to sustain our Orthodox Youth to achieve their
potential academically.

The Boy Scouts of America holds a national jamboree
every four years at AP Hill, Virginia and again in 2005 the
EOCS with have a display booth. In addition, Eastern
Orthodox Religious Service will be held with Metropolitan
Herman of the Orthodox Church in America and
Metropolitan Maximos of the Greek Orthodox
Archdiocese officiating and usually with several hundred
Orthodox Scouts attending.
EOCS Board member Christina Chukalas was recently
honored by the Staten Island Borough for her contribution
to children and especially to the Girl Scouts.
The Queens County Council of Churches honored Sokratis
Galitsis, also a Board member, with the Good Shepard
Award for his many years of dedication to the Boy Scouts.
The EOCS web page
encourages units to
submit photos and articles of local and regional Orthodox
Scouts events and activities.
