Easter celebrations for the Greek-Cypriot Metropolitan Police Association

This morning, Friday, 15 March 2024, on behalf of His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain, the Revd Oeconomos Demetrianos-Christakis Melekis attended the annual Easter celebration hosted at New Scotland Yard by the Metropolitan Police Service Greek and Cypriot Association.

Fr Demetrianos read a message of greeting from His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas, who thanked the members of the association and all of their colleagues for their courage, sacrifice, and dedication in the line of duty, assuring them of the prayers and support of the faithful of the Archdiocese. His Eminence also conveyed his wishes for a joyous Easter celebration to those who will observe the Feast of our Lord’s Resurrection in two weeks’ time, as well as a blessed beginning to Holy and Great Lent for all Orthodox Christians.

The Revd Protopresbyter Joseph Paliouras then led the Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music in chanting several Lenten hymns to honour the gathering.
