The Demolition of Koimisis Tis Theotokou Church
The demolition of Koimisis Tis Theotokou Church has begun, and one cannot help but have mixed feelings; a sense of bitterness for something so close to our hearts which was lost and a sense of hope for something that will be equally as beautiful and beloved.
Following the schedule and obeying the city’s by-laws, the workers responsible began the demolition, with utmost respect to the Church’s valuable contents which can be salvaged.
The work commenced in July, with a small break for the construction holiday, and is continuing uninterrupted. The following pictures are from the work that was carried out on Wednesday, August 12, 2015.
