What A Journey It Has Been!
This year, 2017, will mark the 100th Anniversary of our community. Founded on February 16th, 1917, The Hellenic Community of Oakland and Vicinity was incorporated by the State of California.
We will be celebrating and recognizing the transitions of our past: the early 1900s where community members met in a rented hall in Oakland, to the Church of the Assumption on Brush Street in the 1920s to late ‘50s, and 1960 through present day at Ascension Cathedral, here on Lincoln Avenue, it is time we celebrate our first 100 years.
All of our October 2017 celebration details are here for you… It will certainly be one for the books!
