The new Mayor of North Corfu assumed his duties
On Saturday afternoon, August 31, 2019, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Blessing service and the swearing-in ceremony of the new Mayor of North Corfu, Mr. George Macheimaris and the new members of the local City Government, in Acharavi.
His greeting addressed not only the long-standing friendship and spiritual bond that links him with the new Mayor of North Corfu, but also the excellent cooperation they had in the social work of the local Church.
In addition, the Bishop of Corfu pointed out that the ministry of the people of God is Cross. Particularly in our home country today, we have no room for political rifts and divisions, but we are all united, in the mind of Jesus Christ, to be a united front in order to more easily address the diverse challenges and problems of people.
In closing, Mr. Nektarios congratulated Mr. Macheimaris and the members of the City Council on a good, blessed and fruitful term, assuring that the local Church would be supportive of any good work.
