On Sunday, June 23, Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Messinia inaugurated the new chapel of the parish of Saint Panteleimon in Diavolitsi, which is dedicated to the Holy Trinity.
Early in the morning dozens of believers attended inauguration ceremony, and then participated in the Archieratic Divine Liturgy, presided by the Metropolitan of Messinia.
In his sermon the Metropolitan referred to the importance of the inauguration in the life of our Church and the symbolic nature of the tradition of placing relics beneath the altar.
Before the end of the Divine Liturgy, Oikonomos Konstantinos Andriopoulos was ordained as Protopresbyterian, and the priest of the adjoining parish of Evangelismos of Theotokos in Dessylas, Fr. Christos Douvaras, acknowledging his ministry and devotion to the parish, was ordained as Oikonomos.
