Christmas feast of the Kindergarten School of the Holy Metropolis of Corfu
On Wednesday afternoon, December 19, 2018, the Christmas feast of the Kindergarten School “Eleni Bellou” of the Holy Metropolis of Corfu took place at the Spiritual Centre. Children told poems and sang Christmas Carols.
In his short greeting, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios underlined the need to have pure and sincere heart, like the ones of the children and become like them as far as evilness and guile are concerned. If someone is like children, can enter to the Kingdom of Heaven.
Moreover, his Eminence, having thanked the parents for their trust to the local Church, pointed out that the foremost duty of parents is to nurture their children according to Christ, following Saint Paul’s advice. In such an environment, children learn about Christ and Greece, in the Kindergarten School of our Holy Metropolis, something we are proud of.
Finally, Mr. Nektarios congratulated the general responsible of the Kindergarten School, Protopresbyter father Themistoklis Mourtzanos, General Prelatic Warden of the Holy Metropolis of Corfu, the headmistress of the School, Mrs. Stavroula Sotiriou as well as the teachers, wishing to all of them merry Christmas.
