Ten young men and women dove for the cross and Antoni Touris from Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Fort Lauderdale was fortunate to retrieve it from the intracoastal waterway. Their community was doubly blessed the same day, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Fr. Peter Zougrasordination as a priest. AXIOS!
