New Tuesday at Themata Monastery

New Tuesday at Themata Monastery

New Tuesday – in the village of Themata over looking Sami, the ancient Monastery of Theotokos celebrates with a church service devoted to the icon of the Virgin Portaitissa of Mount Athos. People attend the service and pray for family and friends whom have various troubles – or themata – taking with them icons to leave at the church and asking for solutions to their problems. Following the church service, they celebrate with traditional boiled goats soup, souvlaki (kebabs) and local wine. Live bouzouki music entertains the hundreds of people who flock there and it is an enjoyable afternoon of music, food and dance.
The music will start about 12 midday with Panagiotis Palimeri and Gerasimos Kopsahelis.
