Helicopter Crash Kills Aussie Bishop

An Australian Greek Orthodox bishop was killed alongside the spiritual leader of African Greek Orthodox Christians in a helicopter crash that killed 16 off the coast of northern Greece on Saturday.

Bishop Nectarios was a bank manager before being ordained a priest-monk and serving at the St Nectarios Monastery in Adelaide....He was the head of the church's operations in Madagascar, Mauritius and Reunion - which was part of the Alexandrian church before becoming its own diocese in 1997.
Peter VII, the 55-year-old Alexandrian Patriarch, was greatly respected for his work on improving Orthodox relations with the Coptic and Roman Catholic churches, as well as his humanitarian work in Africa.
