Volunteer of the Month for March 2009
Nick Terezis

“You have to be willing to hear, ‘no’, dozens of times before you hear yes ... nothing that is really good ever comes easy.” Nick Terezis had been the Chairman of the IOCC Pittsburgh Metropolitan Committee for 6 years. Though Nick has a full-time job and a family, he has made time to plan several events for IOCC each year for the past 10 years. While living in New York, Nick planned between 8-10 events each year.

When Nick moved to Pittsburgh and learned a metropolitan committee did not exist, he knew he had to get one going right away. Nick contacted all 125 parishes in the Pittsburgh area and started the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Committee. Each year, the Pittsburgh committee hosts a minimum of 4 events, i.e., One-In- Spirit Dinner, Theophany Ball, Wine Tasting and a special themed event.

Nick is full of good ideas and knows how to execute them in an efficient and effective way. When telling me about the committee, Nick said: “It’s an honor to help people do their best to do God’s work. The Pittsburgh committee is full of such good people and good stewards. IOCC is still a secret to many, but if I can help get the word out a little faster, that is a good thing!”
