The Hellenic Presidential Guard who were in South Australia for an official visit from Athens, took part in the Easter Saturday Midnight Mass service at three different Greek Orthodox Churches in Adelaide.

The churches the Evzones attended include St George Church in Thebarton, The Nativity of Christ in Port Adelaide and Prophet Elias in Norwood.

At midnight, the Priest emerged from the altar with the Holy Flame, passing it on to all the parishioners.

The Evzones lead the faithful outside the church where the moment of Christ’s resurrection was celebration, with the chanting of ‘Xristos Anesti’.
