Church of the Annunciation of the Virgin in Mikro Embolo

The residents of the settlement of Mikro Emvolo went to church in the Holy Church of the Transfiguration of the Savior or in the “Monastiraki” that existed in their area. This was dedicated to the Dormition of the Virgin. Abbess was Aikaterini Alatopoulou, who, like the other nuns, was of refugee origin, spent their fortune and spent their lives serving the Church. Soon, “Monastiraki” was deemed insufficient for the needs of the parish. A series of actions followed by the residents of the area, who, through the Allatini Settlement Association “Proodos”, were active in finding a plot of land and financial resources. Finally, in 1964, the residents erected a wooden parapet on their own, which was the first form of the Church of the Annunciation of the Virgin. In 1976, the foundation of the current church was laid on this site, on August 13, 1986, its doors were opened and on November 20, 1986, its inauguration, under the patronage of the Most Reverend Metropolitan of Nea Krini and Kalamaria, Mr. Prokopiou.
