Patriarch of Jerusalem’s visit to Romania on the occasion of Saint Andrew’s Feast day


On November 30, Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem concelebrated the feast of St. Andrew with Patriarch Daniel of Romania in the newly-consecrated National Cathedral in Bucharest tonight and tomorrow.

Patriarch Theophilos had previously visited Romania in 2014.

On this 2018 trip, he offered special gifts, especially a fragment of the relics of Saint John the New Chosebite, a Romanian saint who lived and reposed in Jerusalem, as well as a piece of his vestments.

Both patriarchs will also take part in ceremonies organized on the occasion of Romania National Day and the Centenary Year of the Great Union of 1918.
