Greek Orthodox Archbishop calls for people to retain “hope” over Christmas, and optimism for a better year ahead
Archbishop Nikitas Christmas message delivered to the City of London
His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese delivered a Christmas message to the UK’s shipping community on Lime Street, the heart of the global insurance market and shipping community underlining the need to retain “hope”.
Speaking at the Lime Street HQ of strategic communications agency J7 Communications Ltd His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas said:
“As we approach the Great Feast of Christmas known as the Nativity, the birth of Jesus Christ and the New Year offer to our community and the world at large, and every single person, that which the church gives; the message of hope.”
Speaking at an event organised in the City of London, to address the shipping community, His Eminence said, “no matter where you are, even if you are at sea, try to celebrate the event that Christ is born and glorify Him.”
“So, let’s look to the New Year with hope and optimism, with solutions being found, including those linked to the COVID-19 virus”.
