In a particularly charged atmosphere, the swearing-in ceremony of the students of the Patriarchal Supreme Ecclesiastical Academy of Crete took place on Tuesday (22/11) with the presence of final students from both the Priestly Studies Program and the Byzantine Music Program.
The “present” at the graduation was also given by the Most Reverend Archbishop of Crete, where during the speech he mentioned the deceased Vangelis Giakoumakis emphasizing that “today Vangelis receives a degree from heaven”.
In addition to the students and their parents and faculty members, the Most Reverend Archbishop of Crete, Mr. Eugene.
Among those taking the oath was the sister of the late Vangelis Giakoumakis who passed away so unjustly in 2015, Eleni Giakoumakis, who graduated from the Byzantine Music program.
The Most Reverend Archbishop of Crete was actually the one who buried Vangelis Giakoumakis in Seli when he was Metropolitan of Rethymnon and Avlopotamos.
The Most Reverend Archbishop of Crete in a pastoral and friendly manner gave the degree to the young graduate. And as usual with the case of the Venerable former Archbishop of Crete Mr. Irenaeus, the current Archbishop of Crete gave a speech and spoke to the faculty members and students about Vangelis Giakoumakis.
The atmosphere became very emotional and everyone during the ceremony spoke of the enlightened spirit of the new Archbishop. During the speech, the Reverend Archbishop mentioned the unfortunate deceased, stressing that today Vangelis receives a degree from heaven.
There were not a few who shed tears, while at the end of the event many faculty members rushed to congratulate him for this pedagogical speech that put man at the center.
