Archbishop Kallinikos Honored

On the evening of February 16, 2016, His Beatitude, Archbishop Kallinikos, President of the Holy Synod of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece (at center, above), was among those honored at a special ceremony for “Personalities of 2015-2016,” sponsored by the Greek Art Academy Awards and the Corfiot Union of Piraeus . The ceremony was held at the Auditorium of the Chamber of Commerce in Piraeus (the Port of Athens), from which the Archbishop hails.

The Greek Art Academy Awards honor individuals who have excelled or distinguished themselves in the Arts, Letters, Science, Local Government, Education, Humanitarian work, philanthropic work, and the spiritual cultivation of mankind.

His Beatitude was recognized with an award for his outstanding social and philanthropic activities and for his many years of ecclesiastical service. The award was presented to the Archbishop by the President of the Corfiot Union of Piraeus, Mr. Demetrios Mouzakites, and the accompanying certificate by the honorary President of the City Council of Piraeus, Mr. Panagiotes Koubatsos.

The recognition of a Prelate of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece is a significant and unusual recognition of the struggles of the martyric “Old Calendarists,” as well as a remarkable tribute to the person of its Chief Hierarch.
