      ENFIELD CT— St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church
      will be welcoming Bishop Metropolitan Methodios
      for a Divine Liturgy on Sunday, Dec. 7.

      Methodios is from the Greek Orthodox Metropolis
      of Boston, one of the many dioceses in the U.S.,
      said Rev. Peter Chrisafideis, pastor of St. Nicholas.

      On Sunday, services at the church, at 23 Church
      St., begin at 9 a.m. and the Divine Liturgy will
      begin at 10 a.m. A fish dinner will be served in
      the church hall, with admission being $15 for
      adults while children under 12 are free.

      Methodios is coming to the 90-year-old church to
      honor the patron St. Nicholas for St. Nicholas Day.

      Methodios was born in New York City and became
      bishop in 1984. He is the spiritual leader of the
      Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston, which
      includes all of Massachusetts, Maine, New
      Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont, and the
      Connecticut towns of Enfield, Danielson, New
      London, and Norwich, according to the Greek
      Orthodox Metropolis of Boston’s Web site.

      The Metropolis’ offices are in Brookline, Mass.
      and it consists of 63 parishes which minister to
      the needs of approximately 200,000 Greek Orthodox members, the Web site says.
