Metamorphosis in Nopigia
On 28 June 1993 the Chapel at Nopigeia, Kissamos (Euro-Mediterranean Youth Center) was founded by the late Metropolitan of Kissamos and Selinon, Eirinaios.
The selection of this feast is important, as the main objective of the Centre is to contribute to the spiritual transformation of young people and encourage their participation in an effort aimed at the transformation of life and the world. There is a stone from Mount Thabor built into the wall of the Chapel.
In addition, the day of its feast also reminds us of the day when the nuclear bomb fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (6 August 1945).
The fact that this celebration and tragedy coincide, is a cause for reflection and a reminder of the responsibility held by everyone concerning the active pursuit of peace and life.
Each year, after the end of the Vesper, various events are held (musical and theatrical performances), especially in the adjacent Stone Theatre.
