The Archdiocese of America and its members will take “active part” in the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the 1821 Greek War of Independence, Archbishop Elpidophoros said on Friday, during regular meeting of church officials.

Elpidophoros said it is a “historic anniversary” for the Greek nation and “for all of us Greek-Americans.”
