Athens’ Cathedral Ready By October

by -

Metropolitan_Cathedral_of_Athens02The Metropolitan Cathedral of the Annunciation, popularly known as the Metropolis, is the cathedral church of the Archbishop of Athens and all Greece and Athenians and others will be able to celebrate Christmas there this year as restoration work 51-year-old building is expected to be finished in October.

The earthquakes of 1981 and 1999 in Athens caused significant damage to the building. The reconstruction of the building started in 2010 under the Public Investment Program, but the rehabilitation works stopped due to the economic crisis in Greece.

As the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) has ensured the necessary funds, there will be a call for competition for the undertaking of the hagiographies restoration.
Until the works of restoration be completed, the Cathedral of Dionysius the Areopagite in Kolonaki will serve as Metropolitan Cathedral.

    Glad to see this. One correction, this couch has been under scaffolding for at least 6-8 years…not since 2010 as the story implies. Maybe it will be finished by the time the new multi-million euro mosque opens in Athens.

    Beautiful news!
    Over 97% of the Greek population is baptised into the Greek Orthodox Christian Church.
    The Holy Hellenic nation belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ forever and ever.
