Panagia ...

Tonight is the celebration of the Virgin Mary at the Evagelistria Monastery ...



There will be a procession around the grounds of the Monastery - many of the townsfolk will attend and follow the paths around the monastery with Pater Joseph, as they ask for wishes to be granted, and sins forgiven.

Tomorrow - August 15th is a major holiday here in Greece, the third most important religious holiday. Many businesses are closed and it marks the high point of summer. The city exodus reaches its peak, after this weekend the Greeks head for home from the islands, and another uncertain winter ahead ...
