Pastoral Visit- St. Spyridon, Newport, RI
On Sunday, December 11, 2022, His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios joined Fr. Aaron Walker and the Parish Community of St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church in Newport for the commemoration of the Feast of St. Spyridon, joyfully celebrating the Sunday Orthros and Divine Liturgy. A number of ladies who prepare the prosphora for the Divine Liturgies came forward to receive a special prayer of blessing.
After the morning’s services, a reception was hosted by the Parish Council and the Sunday School families. The Protulis Greek School led the community in the singing of Kalanda, or holiday carols. Many children, including the acolyte (altar servers) as well as adult parishioners had the opportunity to speak with His Eminence and receive his blessings.
