Author: St Paul's Anglican Cathedral, Nicosia, Cyprus
A message from Archbishop Michael
Archbishop Michael, after consultation with the Very Reverend Jeremy Crocker, Dean of Nicosia, has appointed Mrs. Georgia Katsantonis as an Ecumenical Lay Canon of St Paul’s Cathedral. Since the 1980s Georgia has served with great dedication in the diocesan office and has been Personal Assistant to four of the five bishops to date.
She becomes the first honorary Ecumenical Canon of the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf. This honor is given by not a few dioceses around the world to Christians of other traditions who are intimately involved with Anglican life. Georgia, a lifelong observant Orthodox laywoman, has accumulated an unrivaled knowledge of Anglicanism and has done a great deal to liaise between the diocese and the Orthodox Archbishopric of Cyprus as well as other denominations.
She will be installed at St Paul’s in a simple service of evening prayer at 5.30 pm on Tuesday 23 May. Any who wish to attend will of course be most welcome. Please pray for Georgia, for the cathedral in Nicosia, and for the whole diocese to whose service she has devoted much of her life.
