Reverend Chancellor: Father Andreas,
Dear Fathers, Presvyteres and children,
Beloved sisters and brothers in Christ,
It is truly delightful to be here with you – the clergy and families of our Archdiocesan District – in order to share the annual Vasilopita with you. The Feast of Saint Basil has passed, but his spirit remains among us. He was a Father, a Teacher, a Leader and a Theologian. But, above all, he was a soul filled with compassion and care for the less fortunate.
