AHEPA Congratulates His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch
Bartholomew I
AHEPA congratulated His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch
Bartholomew I on the joyous occasion of the 25th Anniversary
of His All-Holiness' elevation to the venerable Patriarchal
Throne of Constantinople. His All-Holiness Bartholomew was
elected in 1991 as the 270th Archbishop of the 2,000-yearold Church founded by St. Andrew, serving as Archbishop of
Constantinople-New Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch.
"On behalf of the AHEPA family, I offer sincere congratulations to His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
on this special, momentous occasion," Supreme President
Andrew C. Zachariades said.
"For 25 years, His All-Holiness has provided spiritual
leadership and guidance to more than 300 million Orthodox
Christians worldwide and has been an inspiration to countless
individuals as evidenced here in the United States by being
bestowed with the Congressional Gold Medal by the United
States Congress in 1997. His All-Holiness has conveyed a loving message of peace, tolerance, and care for the environment
that has made a meaningful difference the world over and
has brought people of all faiths together. Moreover, His AllHoliness has promoted fundamental human rights, including
the universal right of religious freedom, which unfortunately,
the Ecumenical Patriarchate and His All-Holiness himself do
not enjoy fully.
"The AHEPA family cherishes its long-standing relationship with His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
and the Ecumenical Patriarchate. On this joyous occasion,

AHEPA reaffirms its commitment toward the advancement of
religious freedom and tolerance."
In a historic moment, His All-Holiness, accompanied
by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, visited AHEPA
Headquarters, Nov. 5, 2009. His All-Holiness also received the
AHEPA Socrates Award in 1997.
In celebration of this anniversary, the first complete biography on His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew,
titled "Bartholomew: Apostle and Visionary," authored by Fr.
John Chryssavgis and published by Thomas Nelson Publishing
has been released.
