GREEK ORTHODOX FLOCK OF KARAK VISITS THE PATRIARCHATE
On Tuesday, the 25th of June/8th of July 2014, fifty members of the Rum Orthodox Community of the Patriarchate from the town of Karak, South Jordan, and other Jordan cities, visited the Patriarchate under their Steward, f. John.
They were warmly received by H.B. Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem in the presence of Hagiotaphite Fathers. The Patriarch spoke to the guests of the spiritual links between the Patriarchate and its Jordan flock within its irrevocable jurisdiction since the beginning, and advised them to study and observe the history and tradition of the Orthodox Church.
Before leaving to venerate at the Holy Sepulcher and other shrines, guests were offered Jerusalemite memorabilia and the blessing of His Beatitude.
