Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos Falls in Rain; Hospitalized

10/5/2011

Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos is being treated at a hospital in the city of Agrinio, western Greece, following a double fracture in the leg he sustained as he was entering the church of Agios Christoforos.

As the Archbishop was coming out of his car to go to the church, he slipped. His fall was probably due to slipperiness caused by rain, resulting in his injury.

Archbishop Ieronymos was in Agrinio to attend events regarding the celebration of patron Saint Christoforos, while earlier he had been proclaimed an honourary citizen of Agrinio.
