The Ambassador of Greece in Australia, George Papacostas, visited the headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia in Sydney on Thursday, March 31.
Mr Papacostas was joined by his wife and they met with His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia.
After being welcomed to the headquarters by Archbishop Makarios and their Grace Bishops Elpidios of Kyaneon and Bartholomew of Charioupolis, the Ambassador and his wife were given a tour of the recently restored Holy Cathedral of the Annunciation of Our Lady.
