He referred to his path and his priestly ministry from his enthronement until today, while on the same wavelength was the greeting of the Consul General of Greece in Boston, Ambassador Simeon Tegou. It should be noted that Archbishop Dimitrios was received with feelings of respect and love by the hundreds of clergy and laity present.
