Historic visit of HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall to Athens

HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall flew into Athens on Wednesday 9th May at the invitation of the President of Greece, Prokopis Pavlopoulos, for an historic three-day visit to Athens and Crete – the first State visit by a member of the Royal Family since the Second World War.

After arriving on Wednesday afternoon, Charles and Camilla headed to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Syntagma Square  where the Prince laid a wreath to remember the unknown and missing casualties of war.

Later on they met with President Prokopis Pavlopoulos at the Presidential Mansion and then with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. They also met with Mr Kostis Dimtisas, the General Manager of Apostoli, the Charitable arm of the Orthodox Church, and friend of the Anglican Church in Athens.  On Wednesday evening the President hosted a glamorous banquet in their honour.

Finnish Guys

Finnish Duo enhance our Sunday Worship

On the morning before the last concert of our very successful 15th Spring Organ Series, we were delighted to welcome Hannu Niemelä, baritone, accompanied by Pauli Pietiläinen on the Organ, who sung the  beautiful ‘Finnish prayer’ by Taneli Kuusisto, at the end of our morning worship.   Roughly translated, the Finnish Prayer means:  “Bless and preserve us by your Hand. Lead us on the right way, give us strength. You have  all the Power and Spirit.”

The congregation sat spellbound as Hannu’s beautiful voice filled the church to the rafters and at the end they received a well-deserved round of applause.

We are very grateful to the Finnish Institute for their support for our final concert of the Series, and we hope that all visitors to our Website will keep a look out next year for details of our 16th Spring Organ Series.
