On Holy Thursday in the Greek Orthodox Church we hear the emotion of the Twelve Gospels as we commemorate the death of Christ on the Cross. On this sacred and solemn day His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America visited St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Shrine Church in Flushing, NY. Presiding priest Paul Palesty, Assistant Priests Aristidis Garinis and Alexander Douvres, Archdeacon Dionysios and Deacon Jeremiah also participated in the service.
