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

Just found this information:

ORTHODOX English-language services are held every weekend at St Nicholas' Church in Pallini. Vespers take place at 6pm on Saturdays, while on Sundays there are Matins at 8am and Divine Liturgy at 9.30am. For further information contact Father John Raffan on 210-661-4639

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.
