Saints Constantine and Elena celebrated in Athens - 2011
May 21st on the Church calendar (June 3rd n.s.) marks the celebration of the Holy
Emperor Constantine and his mother Saint Elena whom the Holy Orthodox Church
calls Equals of the Apostles due to all their labours in bringing the true
Christian faith to the entire world. Though our cathedral in Athens is named
for the Holy Great-martyr Demetrios, because that was its original
dedication, the main altar (the central of the three) is
dedicated to Saints Constantine and Elena. These photographs were taken
during the festivities in 2011.
Thanks to Father Andrei Sidnev for the photographs. For Russian, see his blog.
