Watch for this special festive edition of Modern Odyssey as host-producer-journalist, Dr. Despina Afentouli, visits one of the oldest Greek Orthodox communities in the United States: the Zoodohos Peghe Church/The Mother of God (Theotokos) of the Life-Giving Fountain in the Bronx, New York. A parish of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America originating from the Zoodohos Peghe (including a monastery, a Church and a Fountain) in Valoukli, Constantinople, since Byzantine times. The headquarters of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople remain in Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey). As mentioned on the Zoodohos Peghe official website, “as a Bronx hidden treasure”, the community “passionately” serves Bronx “Borough and the larger world, opening” its “portals unconditionally to all”. Modern Odyssey features interviews with leaders, artists, and movers on issues that aim to inspire. The adventure of life, as Odysseus’ epic journey to Ithaca - a symbol of timeless values, and human stories worth telling.
