One year ago, on November 7, 2022, Archbishop Chrysostomos II of Cyprus fell asleep in the Lord.
On Sunday, November 5, 2023, at the Cathedral of the Apostle Barnabas in Nicosia, Archbishop George of Cyprus presided over the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy, as well as the annual memorial service for the repose of the blessed soul of late Archbishop Chrysostomos II.
Bishop Kassianos of Arabissos (Ecumenical Patriarchate), Abbot of the Holy Trinity Monastery of Chalki, representative of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, Metropolitan Daniel of Kaisariani (Church of Greece), and Metropolitan Isaiah of Tamasos and Oreini concelebrated the Divine Liturgy.
The representative of the Ecumenical Patriarch, Bishop Kassianos of Aravissos, referred to the late Archbishop with feelings of gratitude and love.
Metropolitans Kyrillos of Krini and Timotheos of Dodoni (exarch of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem in Cyprus) attended the Divine Liturgy.
Subsequently, the Archbishop performed a Trisagion service at the tomb of the late Archbishop.
“The people deemed the late Archbishop as a true Father, a sleepless guardian, an experienced and discreet guide, and a tireless and selfless worker with his multifaceted social work. They deemed him as an inspired and creative renovator and a tireless fighter, a proud and undaunted fighter for the rights of our Church,” he said.
