Late Holy Week schedule

This calendar is lifted from Vories Sporades Newspaper (klik). It covers the last few days and nights of Holy Week at Panagia Faneromeni church but could apply to the other larger churches as well (Christos, Panagia Papamelitiou, and Agios Panteleimon/Three Hierarchs). The other churches may also have scheduled events which do not coincide with, or are in addition to, the Panagia Faneromeni schedule (ie. Easter Morning Service). Ask your neighbors what’s up.
