Metal Cross of St. Kosmas Aitolos Given To Metropolis of Beroia

January 10, 2012

On Monday morning 9 January 2012 Mr. Demetri Papaioannou of Polidendri in Imathia visited the Metropolitan of Beroia, Naoussa and Campania, in the presence also of the Police Director of Imathia, Mr. Papachristou.

Mr. Papaioannou delivered to the Metropolitan one of the four metallic crosses which Saint Kosmas Aitolos placed in trees on the four points of the horizon as he was passing through Polidendri in 1775.

The cross was discovered by Mr. Papaioannou in November of 2011 on a big log that was burning in his fireplace.
