The Feast Day of St Meletios
The memory of our patron, St Meletios of Ypseni, was commemorated again this year, with many of the faithful in attendance.
On Wednesday evening we celebrated Festal Great Vespers and on Thursday morning there was a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy. The holy services were led by His Eminence, the Metropolitan of Rhodes, Kyrillos, who stressed the universal appeal of the saint and his importance for the Orthodox Church. The sermon on the actual feast day was preached by the Chancellor of the Holy Metropolis of Ierissos, the Holy Mountain (Athos), and Ardamerios , Archimandrite Chrysostomos Maidonis.
St Meletios was entered in to the calendar of saints by the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on the 12th February 2014.
