Originally reported on May 14

The Abbot of the Skete of the Holy Fathers in Chios, Archimandrite Ambrose (Psomias) aged 57, suddenly and unexpectedly departed from this earthly life.

A tireless laborer of the Gospel, and a zealot for the Patristic Traditions, Fr. Ambrose was the spiritual father of the monasteries in Chios: the Skete of the Holy Fathers, the Convents of St. Constantine, the Archangels in Nenita, and St. Matrona, as well as hundreds of faithful.

He loved the Divine Services, and was tireless in fulfilling his pastoral obligations which extended from one end of Chios to the other. He also greatly renovated the Skete of the Holy Fathers, the Church of St. Matrona in Chora, and the Convent of the Archangels in Nenita.

He reposed very suddenly at dawn today (May 1/14, 2015) at the age of 57. The Funeral Service will be served by His Eminence, Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Attica – Locum Tenens of the Metropolis of Chios – on Saturday (May 3/16) at 11 a.m. in the Skete of the Holy Fathers.
