                                Greek Orthodox Easter
  Message of hope from  his Eminence Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain

Our photographer was able to gain acces to some Greek Orthodox churches in North London from Camden Town to Kentish Town and from  Wood Green and  Haringey to Edmonton. Αs it is tradition some   women stay until the early hours of the Good Friday to painstakingly  and patiently decorate the epitaphios which resembles the Tomb of  Christ. It  requires a lot of patience and some artistic touches to make it look as decorative as possible with various flowers and on occasions ribbons and or laces..
On the evening of the Good Friday  a procession is taking place in the  surrounding streets of the church and many local dignitaries such as MPs Mayors councillors police representatives participate in the Good Friday  evening service.
In edmonton there will be a procession on Friday 17/04.2009 at the nearby roads of the Saint Demetrios church in Edmonton Logan Road/ Town Road N9 
In some churches such as Edmonton  it is expected to see over 5.000 attending the Good Friday service and again the Saturday Evening.
His Eminence Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain visited the community in Edmonton and in his eater message among others states that these events we celebrate are unique events of joy , salvation and the renewal of our blessed  hope in Christ.
He wished the community every success and offered prayers for the Queen the community and the government  the police and all those in authority.
