January 2006 = The Holy Epiphany.

  • After the statement of Metropolitan Niphon of Piraeus to the Holy Synod that he does not intend to organise the established synodical ceremony of Epiphany in Piraeus, the Holy Synod decided each Bishop to do the feast of Epiphany in his own province. Thus, His Beautitude Archbishop Makarios substituted the ill Metr. Efthimios in the port of Salonica, His Emminence Kallinikos of Fthiotida did the feast in the port of Stylida (Fthiotida), His Emminence Christophoros of Messogeas in the old port of Ambelakia (Salamina), His Emminence Niphon of Piraeus in the cathedral (Korydallos, Piraeus), His Emminence Agelos of Avlona in his Monastery (Malakassa), and His Emminence Avrossios of Filippon in the city of Drama.
