First Salutations to the Theotokos and the Sunday of Orthodoxy

Here are a couple photos of the icon of the Theotokos, as we set it up in the middle of the church for the first Salutations service on Friday. We also left it there for the Sunday of Orthodoxy, in which we processed outside around the church with icons. As is often the case in Greece, we had a big turnout this Sunday.

One of Phoebe's friends, Kyriaki, from Alli Meria came with her family for church on Sunday, and stayed afterwards to visit.

And here's Phoebe in the kids' room with her Sarakosti, which the kids made at their school. If I understood correctly, it's something like an Advent wreath designed to mark the time until Pascha: one of the legs is folded back or removed each Sunday.
