On the Feast of St. Parthenios, Bishop of Lampsakos (Feb. 7/20, 2014) a concelebration presided over by His Beatitude Archbishop Kallinikos of Athens and all Greece took place in the Monastery of the Angels in Athikia, Corinth. Concelebrating together with His Beatitude were Their Eminences, Metropolitans Gerontios of Piraeus and Chrysostomos of Attica as well as Bishop Ambrose of Philippi, who, according to canonical order acceded into the Holy Synod of the Church of the G.O.C. of Greece.

His Beatitude, the Archbishop welcomed Bishop Ambrose and he praised the pastoral work which he does in far-away Drama. In closing, he wished that we all can manage to respond to the exalted work which we serve, unto the Glory of God.

On his part, His Grace, Bishop Ambrose thanked His Beatitude and the Synodal Hierarchs for the love and faith which they have shown to his person, stressing that he is unrestrictedly at the disposal of the Church.
