Muslim Donates Free Fish To Orthodox Church In Rhodes



The Church of Saint Panteleimon in Rhodes annually gives fish out for free to the people before Palm Sunday, a fasting day in which fish is allowed by Orthodox Christians.

Yesterday, 11 April 2011, one ton of fish was distributed for the feast. Since last year four tons was distributed, they will attempt for another catch sometime this week.

The parish priest of St. Panteleimon Church in the interview below for Kosmos television said that the church is there to help the people for 365 days of the year, and thanked the fisherman, a Muslim man, who for the past four years has donated these fish to the parish of St. Panteleimon in anticipation of Palm Sunday.
