The Archbishop of Australia is travelling, via Ierissos, through to Mount Athos to celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation of the Theotokos at the Holy Patriarchal and Stavropegial, Great Monastery of Vatopedi.

It should be noted that the two Hierarchs have known each other for many years, first meeting when His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia was visiting the Monastery of Repentance of Metropolitan Theoklitos of Ierissos, the Monastery of Saint Nicholas in Varsa, Mantineia, as a pilgrim. The joy of both Hierarchs during this recent meeting was overwhelmingly joyful!
