The Reverend Nic Denny-Dimitriou has been installed as the new Chaplain in the Anglican Church of Paphos.
The Licensing Ceremony, conducted by Bishop Michael on Saturday 18th February, was held in the ancient church of Ayia Kyriaki Chrysopolitissa, Kato Paphos, in front of a congregation of nearly 200 people.
‘Revd Nic’ as he likes to be called is an enthusiastic family man – his wife Julia is also a Priest in the Anglican Church and was Licensed to Officiate in the Cyprus diocese at the same service; their teenage twins, Hannah and Joshua have recently been enrolled at the International School.
Having spent the last 11 years as Rector of the Parish of Hilton in South Africa, Nic saw this position as an opportunity to move on. ‘The time was right to look to a new parish which would provide an opportunity to use my skills, extend my Ministry and at the same time, provide an adventure for the family,’ said Revd Nic.
Twenty-two members, of our Paphos Chaplaincy, travelled to St. Barnabas Church, Limassol, for a Service of Evening Prayer during which Bishop Michael licensed Ken to his new ministry. The Church was packed for a very moving service that had a spiritual warmth and Archdeacon John’s sermon contained words that were very uplifting and relevant to us all.
The service was followed by a gathering in the Church Hall for nibbles, tea, coffee etc. Ken will take up his duties as from 1st August 2013 in the Limassol Mission to Seafarers Centre.
