Title: Is there a Greek orthodox priest in athens that can speak english?
Post by: JR on July 06, 2011, 08:36:30 AM
Hello everyone,

I am looking for a Greek orthodox priest in Athens Greece that can speak English.

I live in Athens, but I speak little Greek.

I want to talk to a priest about converting to Orthodoxy.


Thank you

Thank you for the information, I know the services are no longer held there, neither in plaka.

I shall try calling the phone number as soon as the battery is charged in the phone, it just died on me.

I just e-mailed my ex-pat friend in Athens. I'm sure she'll be able to provide guidance. I'll let you know once I hear back.
