True Orthodoxy in Greece

Of course this was interesting to at least one or two of us here at NFTU!

The webmaster for “O Protoklitos” (The First-called), probably one of the most comprehensive and continually updated news blogs for the Matthewite True Orthodox (Archbishop Nicholas), was ordained Deacon on the Feast of the Dormition. The site is well known for its beautiful (and copyrighted) pictures of Churches and feasts of the Church.

We expect there will be pictures of the services up soon– and it is a lot harder to report when you are the one serving. Many years to the new Deacon Basilios!
