This was the third time Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew has presided over the sanctification ceremony. In attendance also were the Hon. Dimitris Dollis, Deputy Foreign Minister of Greece, Mr. Theodoros Angelopoulos, Archon Megas Logothetis, the U.S. Consul General, the Hon. Scott Kilner, and the Consul of Greece in Istanbul, the Hon. Victor Maligoudis.
