Archbishop turns 80, attends special church service

Archbishop Chrysostomos turned 80 on Saturday and participated the church service at the Constantinou and Elenis church in Nicosia.

Dozens of people who attended the liturgy extended birthday wishes to the archbishop.

Chrysostomos was born Irodotos Demetriou on April 10, 1941 in Tala, Paphos. He became the new Archbishop of Cyprus as Chrysostomos II in October 2006.

To date, up to 75 people are allowed to be inside the church while the health ministry’s epidemiological team is expected to reassess the protocol for places of worship in light of Easter.
