Audience with a delegation of the ‘Apostoliki Diakonia’On 16 May 2024, the Holy Father received in private audience a delegation of the ‘Apostoliki Diakonia’ of the Church of Greece, led by Metropolitan Agathanghelos, and of the Theological College of Athens.

The Dicastery for Promoting Christian Unity, through its Catholic Committee for Cultural Collaboration, has been collaborating with the ‘Apostolikì Diakonia’ for over twenty years, on various cultural and educational projects.

In his speech, Pope Francis underlined the importance of this collaboration for the cultural, theological and ecumenical formation of the new generations. In fact, “it is the young, sustained by the hope founded on faith, who can break the bonds of antagonism, misunderstanding and prejudice that for centuries held Catholics and Orthodox back from acknowledging one another as brothers and sisters, united in diversity and capable of bearing witness to the love of Christ, especially in a world so divided and riven by conflict”

The delegation was received on 17 May by Cardinal Koch at the Dicastery for Promoting Christian Unity.

The last visit by a delegation from Apostoliki Diakonia was in 2019.
