With the sanctification rite, the gathering for the children of the Patriarchal Vicariate of Cairo was held this year as well.
The sanctification rite was performed by Fr. Stefanos Soulimiotis and the Protopsaltis of the Greek Community of Cairo, Ioannis Kountrias, chanted. Also present was Community Commissioner Leonidas Fontrier as well as the children’s parents.
With the blessing of Patriarch Theodore of Alexandria and with the care of the Patriarchal Vicar, Metropolitan Nikodimos of Memphis and the contribution of Catechists Eleni and Maria, the effort is made for the children to learn about Orthodoxy and to discuss various issues of spiritual reflection, as reported by ekkairo.org.
According to the announcement, the Community wants to inform the parish about this blessed endeavor and to raise the awareness of good parents to encourage their children to participate in this activity as well.
