Morphou refugees return for annual pilgrimage to Ayios Mamas church

Hundreds of people attended a service service held in occupied Morphou for the town’s patron saint Ayios Mamas on Wednesday lighting candles in what was an emotionally charged day.

Bishop Neophytos of Morphou and Bishop Nicolaos of Mesogias Lavriotikis officiated at the ceremony which had people struggling to contain their tears.

People expressed their hope that next year they could attend the ceremony in a post-solution Cyprus, while others said that no matter what circumstances the island was under they would continue to attend the service every year.
