The procession of the Epitaph is one of the main features of the island of Syros, an island with both Orthodox and Catholic believers.
All Epitaphs on Holy Friday leave from every Catholic or Orthodox Church in Ermoupolis (the capital of the Cycladic island of Syros and of all the islands of Cyclades) and meet at the Town Hall Square. The Epitaphs of the churches of Aghios Nikolaos, Metamorfosis and Kimisis tis Theotokou have the procession in Ermoupolis and around 10:30 a.m. they meet at Miaoulis square for the obsecration. At 8-9 p.m. the epitaph of the Catholic church of Evangelistria in Ermoupolis precedes passing by Miaouli square.
