Palm Sunday was celebrated by Metropolitan of Ireland in Nafplio

His Eminence Metropolitan Iakovos of Ireland presided over the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy at the Parish Church of Saint Anastasios in Nafplio on Palm Sunday, 28 April 2024.

Characteristic of the day is the priest distributing Palm branches, symbolising Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem. In the Church of Saint Anastasios, the Metropolitan of Ireland distributed Corfiot palm branches. The Corfiot palms are intricately woven from tender palm leaves, forming a cruciform shape, and adorned with small branches of olive, rosemary, and sage.

At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, Fr. Konstantinos Oikonomou, the priest of the Church, expressed gratitude to the Metropolitan of Ireland for the honour bestowed upon them by presiding over the Divine Liturgy at the Church of Saint Anastasios, the patron saint of Nafplio.

During the Divine Liturgy, the choir was led under the direction of the protopsaltis Mr. Konstantinos Routoulas.
