Ordination of Fr. Adam THOMAS Koutroukis
It is a special joy to anounce that the ordination to the Holy Presyterate of Fr. Adam THOMAS Koutroukis took place on Sunday February 21st.

Thomas came to us here in Cornwall with Athina in the mid 2000s and both soon became very much part of our Orthodox Community.

In addition to his singing, Thomas served for a while as Trasurer, until his work took him to London and the Parish of Christ the Saviour, Welling, Kent.

Ordained to the Diaconate by His Eminence Archbishop Gregorios, to the Priesthood by His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas, he will continue to serve and increase his responsibilities in the parish.

We remember Father Thomas and Presbytera Athina in prayer as we know they continue to do us here in Cornwall, to whom they send affectionate greetings.

Fr. Nikitas.
