COMMISSIONERS OF BIRZET COMMUNITY VISIT PATRIARCHATE
On Wednesday the 27th of June/10th of July 2013, the Commissioners of the Rum Orthodox Community of Birzet, a city adjacent to Ramallah, paid a visit to His Beatitude Theophilos, Our Father and Patriarch of Jerusalem.
Matters which concern the community were discussed during the visit, the first of which is the construction of a new church, due to the small capacity of the existing church of St George the Great Martyr and Trophy-Bearer.
For the purpose of the construction of a new church, His Beatitude provided the Commission with a reference letter required for the collection of the necessary donations.
