Theophany Celebrations in Rhodes

January 6, 2011

The Feast of Theophany was celebrated with splendour on the Greek Island of Rhodes today, in the presence of crowds of people.
In the morning the Liturgy was celebrated at the Cathedral of the Annunciation (Evangelismos), led by His Eminence, Kyrillos, Metropolitan of Rhodes.

Afterwards, there was a procession with Rhodes Philharmonic Orchestra, the chanters, priests and people of the island. His Eminence, Metropolitan Kyrill carried out the traditional blessing of the waters, by throwing the Holy Cross into the freezing sea.

In the traditional race for the cross, the person to reach it first and retreive it was Mr. Spyros Syropoulos, Assistant Professor at the University of the Aegean.
