Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece called on all teachers and parents to offer their children more opportunities, during the cutting of the Vasilopita at the Church Centre of Oinofyta on Saturday evening.
The Archbishop referred to the creation of the centre, stressing that it was a place destined for children and thanked the Bishop of Thebes for his support. He also pointed out that children were our future and called on parents and teachers to offer them more opportunities.
The purpose of the foundation is to organise pastoral programmes for parishioners and to develop the Orthodox consciousness of the locals. The Church Centre offers chess, painting, traditional dances, mosaic art, Byzantine and traditional music lessons, as well as film and documentary screenings, children’s choirs, youth meetings for boys and girls. All activities are free of charge.
