  • [01] Vatopedi Monastery Factfinding Committee prepares witnesses list

    The Parliamentary Factfinding Committee probing the Vatopedi Monastery issue has prepared the first list of witnesses who will be summoned to appear before it.

    Witnesses who will be apprearing before the Committee on Monday include former Appeals Court judge Eleftherios Roidis (president of the first Advisory Council set up in connection with the ownership of land granted to the Vatopedi Monastery).

    [02] Ecumenical Patriarch in Drama

    Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I on Saturday visited the Ascension of our Lord convent in Drama, northern Greece, to attend services for the beatification of a new 'Blessed' of the Orthodox Church, Georgios Karslides the Confessor.

    Bartholomew was accompanied on his visit by Macedonia-Thrace Minister Margaritis Tzimas and Drama Metropolitan Pavlos, who spoke about the rich spiritual and social work carried out by Georgios Karslidis and stressed that he had dedicated his entire life to God. The Patriarch noted that his life had many things in common with the older and important confessors of the Orthodox Church and faith.
