Metropolitan of Kition

Last Sunday we had to honour to welcome at our Community His Eminence Chrysostomos the Metropolitan Bishop of Kition (Larnaka - Cyprus).

His Eminence celebrated the Episcopal Mass at our temporary place of worship, assisted by our Parish Priest Fr. Anastasios and Fr. Theophanis, a visiting Priest.

During the Holy Service His Eminence offered to Fr. Anastasios an icon of St. Lazarus, who is his own Patron Saint.

The icon was offered in order to be displayed at the new Church and venerated by our congregation.

Then the clergy and the people moved to the new Church where His Eminence presided over a short prayer Service.

At the end he congratulated the Parish Priest, the President Mr. Pantelis Demosthenous, as well as all members and friends of our Community who have taken the initiative to build such a magnificent place of worship.
