THE FEAST OF ALL SAINTS AT THE PATRIARCHATE
On Sunday, 14/27 June 2021, the Patriarchate celebrated the feast of the Sunday of all Saints, as it is established in the Book of Pentecostarion.
On this feast, we celebrate the commemoration of all the Saints, one week after Pentecost, in order to denote that all the Saints are the fruit of the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
If the Comforter had not come, they would not have become Saints, Apostles, Martyrs, Confessors and Righteous. This feast was celebrated by the Patriarchate at the chapel of All Saints inside the Church of the Meeting of the Lord in the Holy Monastery of Sayda Naya, near the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Patriarchate Headquarters.
This feast was celebrated with Vespers on Saturday afternoon and the Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning, led by the Typikon Keeper of the Monastic Church of Saints Constantine and Helen Archimandrite Alexios, with the co-celebration of Hierodeacon Eulogios. The changing was delivered by Archimandrite Eusevios and Monk Vasilios in Greek on the right, and by Mr Rimon Kamar in Arabic on the left, with the attendance of Nuns and faithful from Jerusalem and the parish members of Saint James Cathedral.
The Fathers and the congregation were offered a reception at the Hegoumeneion and the courtyard of the Monastery by the good keeper and renovator of the Monastery, Reverend Nun Seraphima.
