Glorification of St. John the New Almsgiver

His Eminence, Metropolitan Demetrius of America, President of our Eparchial Synod, together with His Eminence, Metropolitan Moses of Toronto, representing our North and South American flock, took part in the festivities of the glorification service of Saint John the New Almsgiver, founder of the Sacred Monastery of Saint Demetrius the Great Martyr, in Amphiali.
