Patronal Feast of the Ecumenical Patriarchate

On Saturday, November 30, 2013, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew presided over the Divine Liturgy at the Patriarchal Church of St. George for the celebration of the Patronal Feast of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on the occasion of the Feast of St. Andrew, First-Called of the Apostles.

His All-Holiness presided also over the ordination of the newly-elected Archbishop Job of Telmessos.

In accordance with traditional practice and fraternal relations between our two Churches, the official Delegation of the Pope of Rome and the Roman Catholic Church, headed by Kurt Cardinal Koch, was also present, having arrived the previous day for a reception and conversations.
