Alexandrian Patriarch’s visit to South Africa

The Patriarch of Alexandria and all Africa, Theodore II, last week visited the Orthodox Christian educational institute “Saint Athanasios” in a Johannesburg suburb, which takes care of 200 orphan children from poor African countries.
The school children welcomed the Patriarch with songs and hymns, while he offered them packages with food, sweets and writing materials. Patriarch Theodore praised the Metropolitan Bishop, Serapheim, as well as the African priest in charge, Father Anastasios, for their excellent efforts to upgrade the region.
