On Friday, August 16, 2019, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Blessing service in the third camping period of boys in the new camping facilities of the local Church, in Kassiopi.
Speaking to the children and the camp executives, Mr. Nektarios referred to the message of the Resurrection of Christ (the subject of this year’s camp), which is the center of our faith. As the Apostle Paul points out, if Christ was not raised from the dead, then our faith is vain.
The Bishop of Corfu has even mentioned the new camp facilities. The Holy Metropolis 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.
Finally, His Eminence emphasized the importance of friendship forged especially in the camp and pointed out that for a spiritual father, such as the Bishop, all children are his spiritual children.
