I am delighted to join you today on your parish’s feast – the Metamorphosis of the Savior in the presence of the Prophets Moses and Elias, and before the eyes of Peter, Iakovos and John. Your parish has gone through a metamorphosis itself, as you have rebuilt your church following the terrible and unfortunate fire from six years ago. We re-opened this beautiful church almost two years ago, and you have come back stronger. And for this, we all give thanks to God.
