  • [01] Greek leadership in Alexandria for cathedral's dedication

  • [01] Greek leadership in Alexandria for cathedral's dedication

    The newest Orthodox Cathedral in the ancient port city of Alexandria was dedicated on Sunday during a venerable ecclesiastical service officiated by Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Egypt Theodoros, and in the presence of Greek President Karolos Papoulias.

    The ceremony dedicating the Annunciation Cathedral was among the first, in fact, on Papoulias' itinerary during his official visit to Egypt.

    A high-ranking ministerial delegation from Athens was led by Tourism Development Minister Fani Palli-Petralia, while several main opposition deputies as well as former prime minister Constantine Mitsotakis attended the cathedral's dedication. The ceremony was also attended by several local leaders and representatives of other faiths.

    The leadership of the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation, one of the major benefactors of the effort to open the cathedral, also attended the ceremony.
