    THE PATRIARCH VISITS THE ZULU TRIBE

    Continuing his pastoral visits, on Friday 4th March 2005, His Beatitude Theodoros II Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa visited the Missionary Centre in Natal where the first parish for the Zulus has been established.

    The Alexandrian Primate had the opportunity of meeting the members of this first parish, who welcomed him enthusiastically, singing Church hymns and traditional songs. His Beatitude addressed them with much love, blessed them and wished them spiritual progress. He thanked them for the trust they have shown the Orthodox clergy, their Metropolitan, His Eminence Sergios, and their previous Parish Priest and now Bishop of Ghana, His Grace Damaskinos, as well as the new Parish Priest of the area, Archimandrite Theodoros Dridakis.

    His Beatitude also congratulated the workers and members of the Missionary Committee for their multifaceted and substantial support. He especially thanked Mr Nick Kritikos for his contribution to the building of the church of St Mark at the Missionary Centre as well as the civil engineer Haralambos Liasides for the technical supervision of this work. He also announced that the Holy Archdiocese of the Cape, in co-operation with ''Allilengye'' ( the non-governmental organization of the Church of Greece has organized the operation of a school and a clinic on the grounds of the Mision Centre.

    The Primate of the Alexandrian Throne then went on to visit the Consul General of Greece, Mr John Pediotis, at his home.

    Later in the afternoon, His Beatitude flew on to Bloemfontein to visit the Hellenic Community there. Immediately following his arrival he visited the Church of the Annunciation where he conducted Vespers. The Parish Priest of the Church, Protopresbyter Emmanuel Vasladelis and the Chairman Mr Nick Georgiou welcomed the Patriarch.

    THE PATRIARCH CONTINUES HIS PASTORAL VISIT

    His Beatitude Theodoros II Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa continued his Pastoral visit to the Archdiocese of the Cape in South Africa holding meetings with the Committees of the Hellenic Community of Bloemfontein and officials of the Greeks in South Africa who specially went to Bloemfontein to meet with the Patriarch, on Saturday, 5th March 2005.

    At noon, His Beatitude, accompanied by His Eminence Sergios of Cape Town, Archimandrite Markos Theodosi, Protopresbyter George Zolotenko and members of the Hellenic Community left Bloemfontein and drove to Welkom.

    On his arrival in the town he was welcomed by the members of the Hellenic Community and many citizens of the town.

    Continuing his pastoral visit to the Holy Archdiocese of the Cape, His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa visited the Mator of the city of Port Elizabeth on Thursday 3rd March 2005.

    Accompanied by His Eminence Sergios of Cape Town and the Chairman of the Hellenic Community Mr Sakis Zenios, the Alexandrian Primate visited the City Hall of the city of Port Elizabeth where he was warmly welcomed by the Mayor Mr Faku, who was a fellow prisoner of former President Nelson Mandela during the apartheid era. In their mutual discussions they made mention of the contribution of Hellenism to the city and to the significant role which the Church has played in maintaining the decrees and values of the reformed society of South Africa.

    VISIT TO THE MISSIONARY CENTRE OF PORT ELIZABETH

    Immediately thereafter, accompanied by the Metropolitan and his colleagues the Patriarch visited the Missionary Centre in Port Elizabeth where he blessed the food prepared by the ladies of the Hellenic Community and the members of the Missionary Committee gave it to the 500 children of the St Alban's School who had been waiting for the Primate of the Alexandrian Throne since that morning to visit the place which in the recent past had become a spiritual oasis for them.

    The Principal and Deputy Head of the School warmly welcomed His Beatitude with words of gratitude for the many years of contribution by the Greek Orthodox Church to their School which has the poorest children of the city. The owner of the farm from where the contribution of food is made and also is the centre of the Mission, Mr Nick Siakos, explained to His Beatitude how the missionary effort in the area was begun by the then Parish Priest of Port Elzabeth and now Metropolitan Sergios and thanked the Patriarch for showing concern for its continuation.

    In his reply of thanks the Patriarch ensured those present of his undivided interest in the missionary work of the area and donated R10,000 for the needs of the School.

    His Beatitude was then taken on a conducted tour of the Mission Centre and then went into the mission chapel of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul to venerate.

    VISIT TO DURBAN

    In the afternoon of the same day Thursday 3rd March 2005, the Alexandrian Patriarch flew to Durban to continue his pastoral visit.

    There, in the presence of the Greek Consul of the city Mr John Pediotes, city representatives, govenrment representatives and many people, and accompanied by His Eminence Sergios and His Grace Bishop Damaskinos of Ghana, he conducted the service for the foundations of the new Church of the community dedicated to the memory of St Nicholas, the Apostle Andrew and St Gerasimos.
