Metropolitan Kallistos Fell Asleep in the Lord

The Holy Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain sadly announces the falling asleep of His Excellency Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia on Wednesday 24th August 2022.

A noted scholar, lecturer and author, and devout and faithful clergyman, a beloved spiritual father, His Excellency served Christ and His Church for many years. His words, spoken and written, made Orthodoxy known to the entire world, especially to his native land.

The clergy are asked to offer the appropriate memorial services and the faithful are asked to pray that God will receive his soul in His Kingdom and number him among the just.

When funeral arrangements are finalised, they will be made known to the public.
May his memory be eternal
