Almost 25 years ago I used to work in Korea as a professor in Pusan University, and before returning to Russia in late 1993 my husband and I visited the Monastery of the Transfiguration. I would never have thought then that after so many years I will once again come here.
On the Sunday of Orthodoxy, at the cathedral of St. Athanasios in Kymi, his Eminence Metropolitan Seraphim of Karystia honored Fr. Angelos Vakalopoulos with the official rank of Protopresbyter and Spiritual Father-Confessor.
