H.B. THE PATRIARCH OF JERUSALEM DECORATES METROPOLITAN THEOLOGOS OF SERRES
On Saturday, the 14th/27th of September 2014, on the feast-day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, after the divine Liturgy at the All-holy Church of the Resurrection, His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem conferred the medal of the Supreme Taxiarch of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre on Metropolitan Theologos of Serres, Greece. This honour was bestowed in appreciation and recognition of his love of and support to the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, especially through hosting youth from the Patriarchate’s flock in camps within his Bishopric, and through the organization of pilgrimage tours to the Holy Land and the Patriarchate, i.e. the current visit of members of his flock on the feast-day of the Exaltation of the Cross.
Deeply moved, the Metropolitan of Serres warmly thanked His Beatitude for this distinction which reflects on his Bishopric, and promised to carry on offering his devoted help and support in any way he can to the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Holy Sepulchre and the rest of the Holy Shrines.
