St. Augustine, FL - His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America will join the V. Rev. Father Nicholas T. Graff Executive Director, Metropolitan Nicholas of Detroit, Bishop John of Amorion, Bishop Dimitrios of Xanthos, Father Nicholas Triantafilou, president of Hellenic College and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and esteemed clergy in celebrating Divine Liturgy at St Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine on 41 St George St in St Augustine Florida. Professor Photios Ketzetsis, professor of Byzantine music, will chant the service.

The faithful will remember the Feast Day of St Photios the Great, 9th century patriarch of the Orthodox See of Constantinople while celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the dedication of St Photios Shrine. The Shrine is located in historic Avero House, the sanctuary of the first Minorcan, Greek and Italian colonists who signed onto the New Smyrna Colony of 1768. Like its patron Saint, the Shrine is called to be a steadfast beacon to the faithful, maintaining and perpetuating our Orthodox faith and Hellenic heritage, which is offered to thousands of visitors in America's oldest city.

Matins will begin at 9:00 a.m. on February 4 in the St Photios Chapel. His Eminence will arrive that morning via the City Gates of St Augustine, process down St George Street where he will be greeted by his clergy and begin the Services of Divine Liturgy. A reception will follow within the Constantine Sisters Courtyard and all are invited to attend St Photios National Shrine Day Luncheon at the Casa Monica Hotel at 1:30.

Archbishop Demetrios, primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America and President of St Photios National Shrine will be the keynote speaker. At that time, Gus J James II will receive the St Photios Award on behalf of AHEPA in recognition of their 75 years of philanthropic commitment and dedication to honoring the Greek settlers of the 1768 New Smyrna Colony. Volunteers of the Year, Mr. and Mrs. Gary Peterson of St Augustine will receive recognition for their years of service to the Shrine and particularly for their part in the success of Greek Landing Day 2006.

Please note that seating is limited and tickets are available at a cost of $50.00 per ticket by calling the Shrine at 904 829 8205. Luncheon will begin at 1:30 p.m. Seating is limited and tickets are available by calling the Shrine at 904.829.8205 or by emailing Associate Director, Polly Hillier at info@stphotios.com.
