  • Description

    In Sebastiana, near Edessa, north-west Greece, 84 Moslems - men, women, children - received baptism by immersion in water butts Mar. 4. The Metropolitan Archbishop of Edessa, Mgr. Dyonissios officiated.

    There are many Moslems communities in the Balkans, a reminder of past Turkish rule. North-west Greece is adjacent to Albania, a Moslem country.

    The Greek Orthodox church has shown special interest in Greek Moslems wishing to change their faith - the Sebastiana baptism was the second of its kind in six weeks.
