There are no services in Athens for the foreseeable future due to our use of a University facility. Details to come as we develop them.
Several churches are live-streaming; our friends at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church (Fr. Nicholas served Presanctified Liturgy at Saint Ephraim chapel last spring) are doing so every night at 7:00 p.m. and on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. if you want to watch.
On Saturday, March 21, at 2:00 pm est., His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon will be a guest on a special pop-up edition of Ancient Faith Radio’s “Today Live”  with Archpriest Thomas Soroka. His Beatitude will share a bit about what has been on his mind during the crisis, talk about how to maintain a focus on Lenten efforts during this of separation from the communal Lenten services and possibly the Holy Eucharist, and other topics related to the Coronavirus outbreak, as well as taking questions from callers.
