In Memoriam: Metropolitan Meletius of Nicopolis

Metropolitan Meletius (Kalamaras) of Nicopolis of the Greek Orthodox Church has fallen asleep in the Lord. A native of the Peloponnese, as a young man Metropolitan Meletius studied theology in Athens before serving in the Metropolis of Messenia. In 1980 he was consecrated ruling hierarch of the Metropolis of Nicopolis and Preveza in southern Epirus, which he shepherded until his repose on 21 June at the age of seventy-nine. May Metropolitan Meletius' memory be eternal! More in Greek here.

Update (12:35pm): An English-language press release on Metropolitan Meletius' repose can be found here.
