Ecumenism

Kris Spiru, the President of the US-based Hellenic-American Union, has announced the start-up of an international campaign to have the Hagia Sophia opened as an Orthodox church where people can pray, rather than the museum status it currently enjoys.

Spiru, who legally formed the “Free Haghia Sophia Council” in New York City last week, has said that his goal is to make the ancient edifice into the “center of the kingdom of Orthodoxy.”
