Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew will be in Athens in November, as had previously announced, where he will co-officiate with Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens.

Specifically, the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in a meeting he had yesterday with the President of the Association of the Sacred Chanters of Greece Konstantinos Politis, expressed his joy that he will soon have the opportunity to be in Athens, responding to the fraternal invitation of the Archbishop of Athens and All Greece to co-officiate on Sunday, November 21, at the feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos into the temple, in the Cathedral of Athens, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of his ascension to the Patriarchal Throne.

It is recalled that the Standing Holy Synod of the Church of Greece, at its meeting on September 10, decided, on the proposal of the Archbishop of Athens, to hold honorary events because October 22, 2021, marks the 30th anniversary of the election of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to the Patriarchal Throne, in which the Ecumenical Patriarch was invited to attend.
