THE SACRAMENT OF THE HOLY UNCTION AT THE PATRIARCHATE
On Holy Wednesday afternoon, 7/20 April 2022, the Sacrament of the Holy Unction was observed at the Church of Saints Constantine and Helen as preparation for the welcoming of the Lord’s Passion and of Holy Pascha.
The Holy Unction was officiated by H.H.B. our Father and Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos, along with six Archbishops, so that they would all be seven ministers according to the Typikon Order.
At the end of the service, His Beatitude and the High Priests anointed each other with the blessed oil, followed by the Hagiotaphite Hieromonks, Monks and pilgrims.
