Event of the Union of Families with Many Children in Corfu
On Saturday, March 2, 2019, an event of the Union of families with many children took place at the foyer of the Municipal Theatre of Corfu, in which the excellent students were awarded a prize and the New Year’s cake was blessed.
In the event, the Archimandrite father Ioustinos Konstantas, Chancellor of the Holy Metropolis of Corfu represented his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios. He conveyed the wishes of his Eminence, since he, too, is a member of a family with many children. Father Ioustinos underlined the constant aid of the local Church to the families with many Children. With God’s Grace, many priests have many children. The Holy Metropolis, and his Eminence, himself, believe that supporting the families with many Children should be continuous, especially during this time period, when our homeland has a severe demographic problem.
In his closing, father Ioustinos, having congratulated the President of the Union of Families with Many Children, Mr. Michael Kontis and the rest of the members of the A.C., pointed out that the children of these families constitute a role model for the Greek society. These children take into account the difficulties of life and thus, become more mature and are characterised as fighters of life.
Then, the New Year’s Cake of the Union of Families with Many Children of Corfu was cut and blessed.
