NEW YORK - His Eminence Archbishop Spyridon took part in a luncheon and informal open forum discussions with students of Hellenic College-Holy Cross School of Theology Sept. 6. Bishop Isaiah, HC/HC president, also participated.

The Archbishop wanted to meet with and encourage the students for the new academic year. The students engaged in a warm and constructive dialogue regarding the student life at HC/HC and thanked His Eminence for taking time to meet with them.

Archbishop Spyridon held a separate, informal meeting with faculty members, along with Bishop Isaiah, to offer encouragement for the new academic year and to show the full support of the Archdiocese.

That evening, the Archbishop officiated at Vespers at Nativity-Assumption of the Virgin Mary Church in Cohasset, near Boston. Also participating were Bishop Methodios of Boston, Fr. John Maheras, pastor, and many area clergy.

The following morning, on Sept. 7, His Eminence consecrated the church and celebrated Divine Liturgy. An estimated 400 persons attended.

At the consecration service, the Archbishop placed the relics of Sts. Panteleimon, Kyricos and the holy fathers martyred at Sinai-Raitho, in the altar.
