Cyprus: Orthodox defy lockdown orders for Easter
April 26, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Orthodox Archbishop Chrysostomos of Cyprus has announced that he will not abide by government restrictions on the number of believers allowed into churches during Holy Week and Easter—which are observed by the Orthodox world this week. “We will not obey,” the archbishop said. While he asked the faithful to wear masks and keep social distance, he insisted that “everyone can go to church.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
