His Eminence, Metropolitan Demetrius continued visiting the clergy and faithful of Thessaloniki, passing on to the faithful greetings from the flock of America. On Saturday, January 17th, he visited the hometown of his parents near Florina. There, he went to the cemetery and had a memorial service for his ancestors and visited the 15th century Church of Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker.
