  • [01] Football league's 'lockout' to end on Oct. 27

    08/10/2002 23:29:21

    The professional soccer club league (EPAE) which represents teams in Greeces first, second and third divisions -- has announced that its ongoing ?lockout? will end on Oct. 27, allowing the fifth week of first division play to resume after a roughly one-month interval.

    Only the first four weeks of the 2002-03 season had been played when EPAE decided on the lockout following the collapse of one of two subscriber networks in the country, a development that left 10 first division clubs without broadcast revenue contracts.

    Champions League play for two teams Olympiakos Piraeus and AEK Athens -- UEFA Cup obligations, local Greek cup matchups and a friendly by the national team kept many first division players, however, in form during the lull.

    The leagues failed efforts to secure more money from state-owned football pools was cited by team owners as one of the main reasons for the lockout.

    Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos and Culture Minister Evangelos Venizelos, in an event held at the Old Parliament building on Tuesday night, presented a bilingual 500-page catalogue, in English and Greek, on the Jubilee 2000 exhibition organised at the Byzantine Museum last year under the title ''Great and Paradoxical Mystery.''

    The exhibition had been jointly organised by the Church of Greece and the culture ministry.

    Archbishop Christodoulos thanked the Greek government for its support for the Church's decision to organise the exhibition. On his part, Venizelos said the exhibition and the catalogue was ''a token of cooperation between politics and the Church in the sector of promoting cultural heritage and other such cooperation will follow.''

    08/10/2002 21:45:05

    The Metropolitan of Warsaw and All Poland Savvas was given an honourary doctorate by the Aristotelion University's Theology Faculty on Tuesday.

    Thessaloniki Mayor Vassilis Papageorgopoulos also awarded him the city's gold medal in recognition of his work and contribution.

    Born in 1938, Savvas attended studies at Warsaw's Christian Academy and in May 1998 he was elected Metropolitan of Poland's Orthodox Church which has 600,000 faithful, meaning two percent of the country's population which is exclusively Roman Catholic.

    Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos and the members of the Holy Synod also honoured Savvas on behalf of the Church of Greece last May.
