  • Description

    ATHENAGORAS THE FIRST, ECUMENICAL ORTHODOX PATRIARCH AND ARCHBISHOP OF CONSTANTINOPLE, ARRIVED IN LONDON TODAY FOR THE FIRST EVER VISIT TO BRITAIN BY AN ECUMENICAL PATRIARCH.

    THE PATRIARCH WAS GREETED AT LONDON'S HEATHROW AIRPORT BY DR. MICHAEL RAMSEY, ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, AND SPIRITUAL HEAD OF THE ANGLICAN CHURCH. THE VISIT OF THE 81-YEAR-OLD PATRIARCH IS SEEN IN BRITAIN AS A CONTINUATION OF AN ECUMENICAL TOUR WHICH INCLUDED AN HISTORIC VISIT TO POPE PAUL IN ROME LAST MONTH. THIS WAS HAILED AS AN IMPORTANT STEP TOWARDS REUNION OF THE CATHOLIC AND ORTHODOX CHURCHES. THE PATRIARCH WILL BE DR. RAMSEY'S GUEST DURING HIS SIX- DAY STAY IN BRITAIN.
