President Joe Biden sent a letter to Elpidophoros, the Archbishop of the Americas on April 8, thanking him for his remarks he shared on Greek Independence Day and for offering the opening prayer to the White House’s Easter Celebration, which was virtual this year.

Biden said that “many across our nation and world are struggling right now, and at times like these we must lean on our faith and our families.

“I am grateful for your continued leadership, commitment and inspiration during these unprecedented times.
