Elder Metropolitan Emmanuel of Chalcedon officiates at the Church of Saint Panteleimon, Kouskountzoukion

On Sunday, 28 January 2024, (15th Sunday of Luke), His Eminence Elder Metropolitan Emmanuel of Chalcedon officiated from the throne at the Matins and Divine Liturgy, which was served by the Protosyncellus of the Holy Metropolis of Chalcedon, Archimandrite Evgenios Karatzas, along with Deacon Father Asterios Bardakci, at the Church of Saint Panteleimon, on the shores of the Bosphorus, in the picturesque Khrysokeramos (Kuzguncuk), which once teemed with life and for many years Greeks, Turks, Jews and Armenians lived in harmony and this is witnessed by the places of worship that exist in the area.

Also present for the Divine Liturgy were the Consuls in Constantinople, Mr. Stavros Christodoulidis and Mr. Theofilos Georgakis, the President and the members of the Khrysokeramos Community, while it is worth noting that there were also many believers who participated from the surrounding area and the greater City of Constantinople.

At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, Elder Metropolitan Emmanuel spoke appropriately to the congregation, analysing the gospel reading for the day and then distributed the Antidoron to the faithful.
