Farewell to Demetrios Kremastinos

Farewell to Demetrios Kremastinos

A beloved friend of the Network of the Ecumenical Patriarchate for Pastoral Health Care is no longer with us. The distinguished Professor of Cardiology, Demetrios Kremastinos, former Minister of the Department of Health and a member of the Greek Parliament, passed away on Friday May 8, 2020 after a long battle with the Covid-19 virus.  Dr. Kremastinos respected and supported the Patriarchal Network. In 2011, he launched the 2nd International Conference of the Ecumenical Patriarchate for Pastoral Health Care that took place in Rhodes, whose theme of was “Caring before the Gates of Death”. We pray that the Resurrected Lord grant a peaceful repose to the soul of Demetrios Kremastinos, offering unsparing heavenly comfort to his family and friends.
