I have been a member of Hellenion for over a decade now and am proud to belong this group. In addition to support for those of us who are dedicated to the Gods of ancient Greece, there are numerous discussion fora, a basic Adult Education class for those who want to learn more, various classes offered on a variety of topics such as how to sing a hymn in ancient Greek, a library, flyers and promotional materials available for Pagan Pride and other events, lots of wonderful information about both the ancient religion and ways to worship in the modern world and (most excitingly) a rigorous clergy education program for those who wish to become legally ordained clergy in our religion.

I joined about a year ago because I wanted to support the work they were doing. They have been very open to membership and I am so glad to be a part of their movement. If you're interested in Ancient Greek Religion, this is a fabulous group!
