Pentecost - Day of Cyprus

Today we commemorate in our Church calendar the Great Feast of Pentecost. One of the special Services that is usually celebrated in our Churches is the so called “Kneeling Vespers”.

Fr. Patrick, an Orthodox Priest-monk from New Zealand had assisted us today in the celebrations.

In our Community we commemorated also today the Day of Cyprus. Special prayers were said for Cyprus and its people. The President of our Community Mr. Pantelis Demosthenous gave a talk on Cyprus, its history and civilisation.

At the end of the Sacred Service Mr. Demosthenous, with Mr. Petros Christofi (Vice-President) and Mr. Soteris Constantinou (Treasurer) offered a present to Fr. Anastasios, as he has been a priest in the Community for 18 years (since June 1993). Then a social gathering and BBQ was organised in the Community premises.
