NAZARETH’S CATECHISM SCHOOL AND THE COMMUNITY OF RENE VISIT THE PATRIARHATE
On Saturday of Souls, the 21st of February/5th of March 2016, a group of fifty members of the Catechism School of the Metropolis of Nazareth, led by the Most Reverend Metropolitan Kyriakos, and a fifty-member group of their adjacent Arabic Community of Rene, visited Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem.
At the meeting, the Patriarch advised all members of the two groups, both children and adults, to persevere in studying the salvaging traditions of the Church, to obey their Metropolitan and to read the Holy Bible, especially the New Testament, recently published by the Patriarchate in Arabic.
The students then performed church hymns, whereas the Chairman of the Community and the President of the Association addressed His Beatitude (see video).
Having received the Patriarch’s blessings, His spiritual children received a copy of the New Testament in Arabic and icons of Theotokos, before going on to venerate at the Lord’s Holy Sepulchre.
