« on: September 23, 2015, 12:49:14 AM »
How would I address a wedding invitation (outer and inner envelope) to a Greek Orthodox priest and his wife?

Thank you!

"The Reverend and Mrs Mor Ephrem Hatzidakis" ought to be fine, I think. 

(Obviously use their names instead of the filler above ;) )

I like to use Presvytera as a title when addressing presvyteras (priests' wives).

...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.
