Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis was at Agios Efstratios to celebrate the Epiphany.
The Prime Minister attended the Divine Liturgy, which was presided by Metropolitan of Lemnos and Agios Efstratios Hierotheos.
He then attended the ceremony of Sanctification of the Waters and the diving of the Cross in the port of the island.
After the ceremony, Mitsotakis said: “Today, on this very important day for Orthodoxy, I wanted to be in the remote Agios Efstratios, a place with a deep history.
“A landmark of division and trial which, however, becomes a landmark of unity and optimism.
“I wish all Greeks many years. Good enlightenment, especially to our fellow citizens who are not vaccinated and are still wondering if they should get the vaccine.
“I encourage them from here to make this choice, this choice of life, this choice of protection for their own lives but also for the safety and health of those they love. Many years again, Happy New Year to all Greeks.”
