On the grounds of an art museum in Wanderviertel, Austria, a new Greek Orthodox chapel has opened. The inauguration was officiated by Metropolitan Arsenios of Hungary and Central Europe.

From the article:

Many members of the Greek society of Austria attended the service.  Representatives of the Macedonia Intercultural Association, such as President Harilaos Zikos and Johann Beck-Managetta of the University of Vienna, were also present at the inauguration ceremony.

This is good news.  With the economic situation being what it is in Greece more and more Greeks are leaving Greece to seek jobs in other countries of the EU.  It is good that they will have church services for their spiritual growth awy from Greece.
