      ''IAKOVOS: A LEGACY" ON THE HALLMARK CHANNEL MAY 8th


      New York, NY - "Iakovos: A Legacy" will be re-broadcast nationally on the
      Hallmark Channel, Sunday, May 8th from Noon-1:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and 11:00
      a.m. (CT). Please check local listings. The 1996 Emmy Award winning program
      was produced by the television ministry of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese
      of America, GOTelecom, on the occasion of the retirement of the former
      Archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America.
      Archbishop Iakovos passed away on April 10, 2005 at the age of 93.

      In this re-broadcast special, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America
      offers an introduction to this hour-long documentary. Archbishop Iakovos
      was the spiritual leader of the Greek Orthodox Church in the Western
      Hemisphere for 37 years. Building on the work of his predecessors, he
      guided the Greek Orthodox Church and the Greek American community through
      their age of maturity to assume their rightful place in this land, as
      vibrant and visible members of American Society. The documentary captures
      the highlights of his long career and examines the effect of his leadership
      from the perspective of the people who knew him best.
