Athens! Group Arrives to Climb Acropolis, See Parthenon & St. Paul’s Mars Hill
by Steve Ray on October 20, 2018
The majority of our group arrived at 1:30 PM at the Athens International Airport. Quick tour of Athens before climbing the Acropolis to see the Parthenon.
My favorite place in Athens is Mars Hill (Aereopagus) which is mentioned in the Bible, book of Acts chapter 17 where St. Paul gives a presentation to the Aereopogites. Fascinating passage where St. Paul teaches us how to evangelize our own current age.
Then Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Dionysius, first bishop of Athens (Acts 17:35). You can hear/see the homily here. Then we walked to a delicious dinner and checked into our hotel. Enjoy!
