A day in the Church Boarding House and School of the Holy Cross in Gjirokaster, Albania

This Church Boarding House & School is run by the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Gjirokastër. At the moment there are 23 high school boys. I was hosted there for 5 days and I really enjoyed children’s company and the daily schedule that was very rich.


Every night, right after dinner, there is a Compline Service that you can listen to below:


A note here: If someone is interested in providing financial support to the House & School which is very much in need, he/she can communicate with the principal, Fr. Eleutherios Balakos at e.balakos@gmail.com
