On Thursday, May 16, the procession of the Sacred Icon and the Sacred Hand of Saint Nicholas the New Martyr of Metsovo took place from the church of Saint Paraskevi to the church of Saint Demetrios, where the Great Vespers was celebrated.
Metropolitan Maximos of Ioannina officiated at the procession, along with Protosyncellus Archim. Thomas Andreou and clergy of the Holy Metropolis.
Later, in the church of Saint Demetrios, a festive vespers was officiated by the Metropolitan of Ioannina, who preached the Divine Word.
The Metropolitan in his speech referred to the denial and repentance of Apostle Peter.
“Christ himself does not hesitate to take these people by the hand and guide them. Jesus Christ by accepting repentance does not count the crime, the fall, or denial. But he counts ultimate thought and repentance,” the Metropolitan said.
Finally, it should be noted that a lot of believers of all ages attended the procession and the vespers.
