        Hi
        Can anyone tell us what the ceremony in Rethymnon was yesterday?
        The archbishop and many other orthodox dignitaries, nuns, soldiers, a band, people in national dress, and a large banner present, along with a lot of media coverage.

        I have done a fruitless search on line, and my curiosity is driving me mad!!
        Thanks

        Anna

            We were in town and saw that as well.

            It appeared to be the inauguration of the new Bishop, replacing the one who died recently
