Senior Greek expatriates from the region of Cape Town, South Africa, who responded to the call of the Good Hope diocese, now have the opportunity to spend some time and speak Greek with people their own age.
During this first “tea for the elderly” which was organized in the new Orthodoxy Center in Lansdowne, Greek seniors had the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make new ones, play backgammon, listen to Greek music or watch Greek movies and enjoy appetizers and desserts.
Metropolitan Sergius of Cape Town welcomed all the parishioners and stressed that it is “a wonderful feeling to know that we take care of our seniors and give them the choice to spend some time in a friendly and familiar environment.”
The next meeting will be held in April and transportation will be available to transfer anyone interested in participating to the area.
