The Kytherian Association of Australia (KAA) has celebrated the feast day of Ayios Theothoros since its inception in 1922.
The responsibility to celebrate the feast day is enshrined in the Constitution of the KAA.
This year 40 Kytherians attended the Mass at St Catherines.
The monastery of Ayios Theothoros on Kythera was built by craftsmen from Monemvasia at the place where a smaller one previously existed and where Saint Theodoros had lived like a hermit the 10th century. The Saint was born in Koroni and came to Kythera when the island was deserted. For this reason he is perceived by the Kytherians to be the one who brought life to the island. Ayios Theothoros died on the 12th of May 961 A.C. and his body was found intact three years later.
With the blessing of Agios Theodoros to all of you, XRONIA POLLA.
