A very interesting talk was delivered tonight at our Community premises by the distinguished Greek Cypriot historian and television producer Mr. Andros Pavlides.
He spoke on the theme: “St. Panteleimon Monastery in the occupied village Mirtou (Cyprus)”.
Before the talk the Parish Priest Fr. Anastasios, together with the visiting Priest Archimandrite Fr. Theophanis Petrou, officiated at a Holy Service, a Supplicatory Canon. The focus of this prayer was on the return of the refugees to their rightful homes and on the freedom of the Greek lands in occupied Cyprus.
The Chairman of our Community Mr. Pantelis Demosthenous had then introduced the speaker and then Mr. Pavlides spoke about St. Panteleimon himself, about the Monastery in the occupied Mirtou as well as about the sociology of the festivals in Cyprus.
The talk was accompanied by Power Point Presentation with interesting pictures from St. Panteleimon Monastery and from other places in the occupied Cyprus.
Mr. Demosthenous and Fr. Anastasios had offered thanks to the speaker for an excellent talk. After the end a reception was offered on the first floor of our Community building, where everybody was invited to attend.
