Rethymnon Misiria - Crete - Greece


distance distance distance distance distance
photo
 
Misiria is one of the former villages which nowadays are melted into the town of ▶ Rethymnon. The rural commune is located east of the city approx. midway to Rethymnon's suburb of ▶ Adelianos Campos, where most of the bigger hotels concentrate.

By the Municipalities Reorganization Law of 1973, Misiria became an own parish as well, but as yet does not have it's own church and parish centre.

Since that time the neighbouring parishes have the care of the members of the Misiria congregation.

Considering the number of members Misiria is a large parish, but regrettably not a wealthy one.

photo Most of the inhabitants belong to the former Greek population of Asia Minor who were compulsorily transferred from the today's country of Turkey at the beginning of the 20th century.

They had to leave their fields, pastures and houses behind which they gained by the work of centuries, and being expellees now to build up new livings, mostly at those places of the island where no agriculture existed until that time as the soils could be cultivated only with enormous efforts.
 
When tourism discovered ▶ Crete and the town of Rethymnon, hotel sites have been built at the more wealthy places such as Rethymnon City and Adelianos Campos.

The inhabitants of Misiria did not have the money to participate in building up the tourism business. So up to the present day the conspicuous gap between the city and it's hotel suburb still exists.
photo In 1994, they finally could start building a church in Misiria which shall also enclose a parish centre with a hall for cultural events.

All members of the congegration attempted big efforts and the carcass now is almost completed.

In spite of all endeavours neither the church nor the parish centre could be accomplished yet. It is just the required money which is missing.

Therefore both the parish council and the father now apply to the Christians all over the world and ask for help.

We are not able to achieve our aim of giving our large parish it's own church and parish centre on our own resources. Please help us with your charity in order to enable us to create a place of devotion and meeting for our congregation.
 
Please help this way predominantly our children and old members who need our Holy Church as a stay in life.

The National Bank of Greece / Rethymnon Branch equip us with a charity account no. 756 54 002 288.

We hope for your generous help which we say Thank You for in advance.

Please contact us in case that you have any questions for further information.
