Archbishop Makarios of Australia meets with Ecumenical Patriarch in Constantinople

Archbishop Makarios of Australia has met with the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in Constantinople, according to an announcement issued earlier today by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia.

In this visit, which remains unknown when it will conclude, the Archbishop is accompanied by Metropolitan Ezekiel of Dervis, Bishop Bartholomew of Charioupolis and Archdeacon Athenagoras.

On Sunday, the Archbishop served on the throne at the Patriarchal Church of Saint George in Istanbul in the presence of the Patriarch.

Earlier this year, Archbishop Makarios also met with the Patriarch after he joined Australia’s Ambassador to Greece, Arthur Spyrou, during a visit to Constantinople in February.

This visit comes after the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese issued a statement earlier this month saying it would commit to contributing towards “the healing of wounds” caused by the fire at Balıklı Greek Hospital in Istanbul.
