Archbishop of Thyateira and Great Britain cuts Vasilopita at Greek Cypriot Brotherhood, in North London

On Sunday 14 January, 2024, His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain led the ceremonial cutting of the Vasilopita of the Greek Cypriot Brotherhood, at the premises of the Brotherhood in North London. Also present were His Eminence Metropolitan Athanasios of Cologne and His Grace Bishop Iakovos of Claudiopolis.

The event was a community gathering that saw the participation of notable figures including His Excellency Andreas Kakouris, High Commissioner of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr. Christos Goulas, the Consul of the Hellenic Republic, MP Bambos Charalambous, Tony Vourou, Deputy Mayor of Barnett, as well as Councillors, the wider Greek Cypriot community and clergy from the Holy Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain.

The choir of the Archdiocesan school of Byzantine music, led by Protopresbyter Joseph Paliouras also welcomed the New Year with traditional hymns and the event was followed by a reception.

A highlight of the event was the moment when Mr. Christos Karaolis, the Vice-President of the Brotherhood, discovered the coin in his piece of Vasilopita – a sign considered to bring luck for the coming year.
