The Ordination

After the speech, Fr. Spyridon and Fr. Alexios took me to venerate the icons on the iconostasis (see above), before going into the altar. There I was led around the table three times, venerating each corner of the altar and the bishop's hand (see below).

I then knelt at the altar as Bishop Maxim read the ordination prayers (see below).
