To honor the bicentennial of Greek Independence, Mayor Ethan Baker of Troy, Michigan, with its name tied to an ancient city with Hellenic roots, presented His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas of Detroit, Fr. Paul Patitsas, and Fr. Michael Manos of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Troy, Michigan with a declaration in commemoration and acknowledgment of this important event that impacts the entire world to this day. We thank Craig Theros for his work in honoring this day.
