Youth Group from the Metropolis of Chicago visits Nichori of the Bosphorus

From the Nichori Community:

On Wednesday afternoon, 2 August 2023, The Nichori Community received with great joy a group of Greek Orthodox Youth, graduates of various Universities, from the Holy Metropolis of Chicago, who came to Constantinople, to venerate the holy places of our faith and to acquaint themselves with the Greek Orthodox Community of Constantinople.

Their visit to the seat of the Ecumenical Patriarchate took place within the framework of a pioneering program of the Archons of the Holy Metropolis of Chicago, which is also supported by the Order of the Archons of the Holy Archdiocese of America “Saint Andrew the Apostle”, members of which led the Youth to Constantinople.

His Eminence Metropolitan Athenagoras of Kydonia, Patriarchal overseer of the Bosphorus district, after officiating during the vespers and Holy Supplicatory Canon to the Theotokos, welcomed the group of graduates with paternal words, along with the Archons and their relatives to the Holy Church of Panagia Koumariotissa and having venerated, they were guided by the Parish Priest Protopresbyter Fr. Konstantinos Vartholomeos.

Then they venerated and were guided to the remaining two Churches of Neochorio (Saint George and Saint Nicholas), as well as the outside area of the School.

In the evening, a modest dinner, offered by the Community of Nichori, was served in the Community Hall of the Holy Church of Saint Nicholas, where the possibility of further acquaintance and exchange of thoughts, experiences and experiences was given.
