On Friday the 18th of November 2016, a Christmas Bazaar, supplemented by a performance featuring various local traditions, took place in the area between the Bishopric and the Cathedral of the Archbishopric of Qatar.

The event included Christmas songs by the Youth Choir of the Ukrainian Music School in Doha, the Mixed Choir of the Roman Catholic Church, children from Catechism School and the Mixed Choir of Romanians and Serbs.

Handmade Christmas ornaments, presents and objects of piety were made through the contribution of the Association of the Myrrh-Bearing Women [Myrophorae], the Youth Club and members of the flock. Also on offer was a large variety of eatables from the Arabic, Greek, Serbian, Romanian, Moldavian and Ukrainian cuisine, courtesy of various companies and ladies from the flock.

The event was honoured by the presence of the Ambassadors of Cyprus, Romania, Poland, Ukraine, Moldavia, and representatives of the Embassies of Greece, Georgia and Serbia in Qatar, as well as of other denominations in Doha.

The great crowd of Qatar Orthodox and members of other Christian Communities sealed the success of the event.
