    Memorial services held in Greece, NYC for 9/11, hurricane 'Katrina' victims

    NEW YORK (ANA) -- Archbishop of America Demetrios officiated at a memorial service here on Sunday in remembrance of the victims of 9/11 as well as the victims of hurricane "Katrina" and last month's airliner crash north of Athens.

    Parliament President Anna Psarouda-Benaki was among the Greek officials in attendance at the service at the Aghia Triada (Holy Trinity) Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Manhattan.

    Both Demetrios and the Greek Parliament president were scheduled to subsequently visit "Ground Zero" and the small Orthodox chapel of Aghios Nikolaos (St. Nicholas) in Lower Manhattan, as the latter was severely damaged during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack.

    Memorial service in Thessaloniki

    Meanwhile, a memorial service was held hours earlier in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, on Sunday as well, the fourth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington D.C.

    The service came in memory of the victims of 9/11 as well as the victims of hurricane "Katrina", which recently devastated parts of Louisiana, especially New Orleans, and Mississippi.
