29th – Celebrations are held in St. Peter’s Church in Valerianos village and the Twelve Apostles ‘s Church in Havdata.
The celebration is significant in light of the ever widening acceptance of the theory that identifies Kefalonia as Meliti. According to Praxeis, St. Paul was shipwrecked on Meliti during his journey from Palestine in 57 AD, when he was being transferred to Rome to stand trial. The theory proposes that based on Praxeis descriptions, Kefalonia is the island of Meliti and not Malta as it was previously believed.

The epicentre of the celebrations is St. Paul the Apostle’s church in Pessada.
