Ecumenical Patriarch granted the offikion of Archon Orphanotrofos to Anastasios Symeonidis

On Tuesday, August 30, 2022, the Ecumenical Patriarch granted the Offikion of Archon Orphanotrofos of the Great Church of Christ to Anastasios Symeonidis, from Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

In his speech, the Ecumenical Patriarch congratulated the new Archon, who comes from Cyprus, and pointed out that he awarded him the Offikion of Archon Orphanotrofos in recognition of his devotion to the Mother Church of Constantinople and his multidimensional contribution to the Holy Archdiocese of Thyateira, especially to the Community of St. Andrew in Edinburgh.

In his response, the new Archon Orphanotrofos expressed his gratitude and emotion to the Ecumenical Patriarch for the great honor he reserved for him, which, as he said, will always accompany him.

Previously, the Ecumenical Patriarch received Symeonidis, with his daughter Tara, at the Patriarchal Office.
