Ordination of our beloved Father Amphilohios to the priesthood

Our Primate and Father, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios, celebrated the Orthros and Divine Liturgy at our Church on Sunday, 14th December 2019 as we continued the Feast Day celebrations of our Patron, Saint Spyridon, Bishop of Trimythounda, the Wonder-Worker.

During the Service and following the Cherubic Hymn and the Great Entrance, our Archbishop conducted the Ordination of our beloved Father Amphilohios Papantoniou to the Priesthood.

Whilst yet a Deacon, Father Amphilohios was presented to His Eminence by our much loved Father Steven Scoutas and the Archdeacon of the Archdiocese, Father Athenagoras Karakonstantakis.

The Deacon was taken through the Royal Doors and around Holy Altar Table three times, venerating each corner and kneeling before His Archbishop each time whilst kissing the Icon of Christ on his Epigonation, as a sign of humility and willing surrender to the Church which is the Body of Christ Himself.

His Eminence then presented Father Amphilohios to the people for their acceptance of the new priest. As the Archbishop held up each piece of the priestly vestments, he exclaimed “Axios”, meaning “he is Worthy”, to which the faithful responded with their approval and concurrence by exclaiming “Axios” with one dynamic voice.

Father Amphilohios then took his rightful place at the Holy Altar Table as a new priest whilst the Divine Liturgy continued to its conclusion.

It was a very emotional and unforgettable day for the new ordinand and for the entire congregation.

AXIOS! AXIOS! AXIOS!
