  • [01] Ecumenical Patriarch on Crete

  • [01] Ecumenical Patriarch on Crete

    Special events are underway in Heraklion, on the southern Aegean island of Crete, marking the Jubilee of the Apostle Paul, which are being attended by the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece, Archbishop Anastasios of Tirana and All Albania, Archbishop Chrysostomos of Cyprus and Metropolitan Ioannis of Pergamon, who will coordinate the final session of the Symposium on Apostle Paul.

    Before the liturgy at the Cathedral of St Minas, the Ecumenical Patriarch addressed a large crowd of faithful gathered outside the church characterizing Crete as the bridge linking the cultures of the three continents converging at the Mediterranean Basin and pointed out that Apostle Paul had included Crete in his grandiose apostolic vision.

    Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the Primates accompanying him will visit Gortina, the seat of Apostle Titos, where they will tour the Panagia Keras Church. They will also visit St Apostle Church in nearby Spileo and attend a luncheon hosted by the local government.

    The final session of the Symposium on Apostle Paul will be held later in the afternoon to be followed by a formal dinner hosted by Archbishop Irineos of Crete and local authorities.
