Humbly andfull ofmemories, we celebrated the 5yearmemorial serviceof theunforgettable nun GerontissaAmphilochia(Mrs.MarikaKoufaki). Our Bishop,His Eminence of Kydonia and Apokoronas Mr. Damaskinossurroundedby priests, he celebrated the Divine Liturgy, while he addresseda richspeech,inspiredby theApostleof the dayandpraised thepersonalityof the late Gerontissa.
He talked about her great love to God and Saint Nektarios, which was expressed in the love of her fellow man. Her charity work was plentiful and in many areas, particularly for girls who grew up in her hands in the “Saint Nektarios Shelter”. Hundreds in number and are all of them rightly called her “Mommy.” Then we passed in the hall of the church, where coffee was served for the entire congregation. We wish her memory to be eternal memory and may we always have her blessing.
