“For over 50 years, Saint John the Divine located at 3850 Atlantic Boulevard was the spiritual home for so many Greek Orthodox Christians,” Senior Priest the Rev. Nicholas Lou said in the news release.
“On a personal note, this is where my parents were married, where my children were baptized, and the church where I was ordained. So many lives were changed within the four walls of that church, and I thank all of those who worked tirelessly over the years to make it possible.
“We wish all the best to Canaan Chin Baptist Church.”
