Marking the Sanctuary area and the Altar

Fr. Anastasios entered the new Church today and marked the Sanctuary area.

He marked the icon-screen line and the opening of its 3 doors.

The central doors of the Sanctuary are called “Royal Doors”. On the sides we have two more doors.

Entering the Royal Doors (only clergymen are allowed to do that) we find in front of us the Altar.

The specific area that will be dedicated to the Altar table had also been marked. Its size is: 210 x 150 x 105 cm.

The picture with the wood-carved Altar appearing on this post it is the actual Altar that has been ordered, by our benefactor Mr. Panicos Herodotou, in Thessaloniki (in Macedonia, North Greece) and will come to our Church in due course.
