On Tuesday October 24/November 6, 2018, one day after the commemoration of St. James the Brother of God and First Hierarch of Jerusalem, there was Vespers and the celebration of the Divine Liturgy at the Chapel of the Forty Martyrs, which is adjacent to St. James Cathedral and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The services were officiated by the Most Reverend Archbishop Philoumenos of Pella, with Hieromonks and Deacons as co-celebrants.
The Divine Liturgy was celebrated in commemoration of the founders of the Holy Church of St. James the Brother of God and of the Chapel, and in commemoration of the many memorable Patriarchs of Jerusalem who are buried therein. A memorial service was held for the repose of their souls.
After the Divine Liturgy, the Priests and the Stewards of St. James’ Cathedral offered a reception to the Episcopal entourage and the congregation.
