The Vicar of the Nassau District, the Reverend Protopresbyter Nikiforos Fakinos, conveyed the blessings of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America; His Eminence envisions the implementation of such initiatives in order to strengthen the spiritual collaboration of the clergy and bring the faithful together for the purpose of their edification and growth in the faith.
