  • [01] Metropolitan Nikiforos of Didymoteicho, Orestiada and Soufli passes away

    Metropolitan Nikiforos of Didymoteicho, Orestiada and Soufli passed away on Sunday morning at the age of 78.

    Nikiforos, born Athanassios Archaggelidis, died in a private clinic in Alexandroupolis, where he was hospitalised for a terminal illness he had been battling for several years.

    Born in Ferres, in Evros prefecture in 1931 and a graduate of the Halki Seminary School and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Nikiforos was ordained a deacon in 1956 and a senior priest in 1961.

    He was elected and ordained a Metropolitan (Bishop) in 1988.

    The late Metropolitan's body will lay in state at the Panaghia Eleftherotria church in Didymoteicho, while his funeral will be held on Tuesday.
