Elder Maximos in Tanzania

The president of the B.D. of our Association, Elder Maximos, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of St. Dionysius of Olympus, went to Tanzania for the first time in March 2017 for the enthronement of His Grace Agathonikos, Bishop of Arusha. During his stay there he catechized many people, participated in the distribution of meals and in the group baptism of 500 natives. Prior to his departure, he donated to the Diocese the money that was required for the purchase of a plot in Igagidugu, where the Holy Church of the Transfiguration of the Savior, St. Porphyrius and St. Photios the Great was built.
