    Sunday of Orthodoxy

    On the First Sunday of Lent, the Sunday of Orthodoxy, the Church celebrates with all its splendour the restoration of the Holy Icons, which marked the end of a hundred-year terrible controversy in Byzantium (726-842). The Sunday of Orthodoxy is celebrated every year in Corfu with special enthusiasm and brilliance, in memory of the final restoration of the sacred icons in Vassilevousa by Empress Theodora.

    The procession of its sanctuary, established in 1985 by Metropolitan (Bishop) Timothy, starts at 11:30 am from the Metropolitan Church and follows all the main streets, the large cantons of the old town and Spianada Square in Liston. Accompanied by the city philharmonic orchestra, the clergy, the authorities and congregation follow.
