Hellenion’s Welcome Kit: Do You Want One Too?

As Grammateus (Secretary) of Hellenion, a non-profit religious organization with 501(c)(3) status, I have many duties.  This includes, but isn’t limited to, processing new member applications.  That duty involves several tasks.  One of my predecessors started a tradition that has become my favorite task as Grammateus, and that is personalizing our welcome kit and sending it to new members.

I was delighted yesterday when I saw that my new friend, Jota, had posted pictures on Facebook of the arrival of his welcome kit and documented his excitement opening it.  This was especially grand considering that he resides in Brazil and is the brother to another member in Brazil.  I am kindling quiet anticipation of new demoi (congregations) emerging all over the globe.

With his permission, I have included his pictures and comments below to give all of you would-be-applicants an idea of what you can expect to receive when you first join.

  2. Hi sweetheart,
    I’m so glad to see my pics in here to invite another members to join and i’m too happy of becoming one of Hellenion’s Member.

    So, about me being brother of another Brazilian member, it’s just in heartfellings and a strong friendship but no family ties and kin. Since we have the same last name, we like to say we’re brother and sister. It’s so cool to see another one seeing us as brothers, ’cause we really like one each other a lot.

    • I’ve already received at least two positive comments, and one application, from people who viewed this entry and saw your photos. All I can say is, you have a positive impact on the community.

      Ah, I wasn’t aware that you both weren’t kin, thank you for clarifying. But you are “close as kin” and that’s what matters. : D
