On Tuesday morning, July 23, 2019, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Blessing service in the renovated camping facilities of the local Church in Kassiopi.
Speaking to the children and camp executives, Mr. Nektarios highlighted the Church’s love for children. The local Church has accomplished this great task of renovating the camp. Work has been going on for two years and will continue in the fall to create a modern space, full of love and aesthetics for young people. The Holy Metropolis has not bothered with money or money for this project, the first fruits of which children will enjoy this summer.
Moreover, His Eminence emphasized that only within the Church lies the truth, for in a world that “camouflages” the false and the dark, presenting it as true and bright, only disappointment awaits anyone who does not seek in a spirit of freedom the true meaning of the truth. Christ. This is precisely what is happening at the campground, where priests and executives do their best to help young people become members of true joy.
Mr. Nektarios coincided with the children, expressing his joy at this effort by the Church.
It should be noted that the newly elected mayor of North Corfu, Mr. George Machimaris, who has been instrumental in organizing the site and collecting garbage, was present at the blessing of the camp.
