The Festival of Saint Paisios the Athonite in Santorini

In 2018 a church dedicated to Saint Paisios the Athonite was built in Mesaria on the Greek island of Santorini, and it was consecrated in 2019. It is seen as a spiritual jewel on an island known throughout the world for its immensely popular summer tourist attractions, which makes it especially valuable to have a festival in honor of this modern Saint of the Orthodox Church in the middle of summer on the island. This year, July 11-12th 2023, Metropolitan Amphilochios of Thera led a multitude of believers in honoring Saint Paisios, who crowded not only the inside of the church but its outside courtyard as well, and led the faithful in a procession on the island.
