Wall of Tribute
When the St. Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine opened its doors on February 27, 1982, a dream came true for all Greek Americans. To honor the Shrine's many faithful supporters, The St. Photios Foundation has set aside the special wall in tribute to them. Fittingly it is called “The Wall of Tribute.”
We can be proud of the tremendous achievement the Shrine represents, but even as the Shrine is dedicated to those first Greek people who came to America in search of freedom and a better life for their children, we must in remembering them now look to the future so that we may preserve their rich heritage and perpetuate their high ideals. We invite you to share in that future by joining hands with us and making a financial commitment to the future of the Shrine.
We ask that you add your name or the names of your loved ones to the list of people already committed by making a donation of $2,000 or more. For your generosity, we would like to honor you by placing your name or the names of others you wish to honor in perpetuity - either living or in memorial - on The Wall of Tribute which is located just outside the beautiful St. Photios Chapel. The Wall is made up of several brass panels. The center panels are reserved for the benefactors of the St. Photios Chapel.
When you make a minimum donation of $2,000, we set aside two lines for name, city and state. Each line allows for 32 characters including spaces and punctuation. With each additional $500 donation, we will provide an additional line for your use. Listings for married couples are either as "Mr. & Mrs." or using both first names.
We invite you to share in that future by joining hands with us and making a financial commitment to the future of the Shrine.
