ATHENS, Greece, JULY 1, 2001 (Zenit.org).- The Greek Orthodox Church hopes to build three luxury hotels in Athens for the 2004 Olympic Games.

According to Reuters, within the next few days it will make an international offer, to find companies that will undertake the construction.

The Orthodox Church, which owns extensive land in Athens, already has the approval of the Greek Tourism Organization to build a 750-room luxury hotel in the heart of Athens.

Sources of the Greek Orthodox Church explain that "it will not become an hotelier, but will simply make use of its property."
