Ecumenical Patriarch officiates at the Liturgy at Soumela Monastery


Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomaios is officiating at the Divine Liturgy at the monastery of Panagia Soumela in Trabzon, Turkey.


It is the first time, after six years of forced silence, that the Liturgy for the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary is taking place, due to the restoration works of the monastery.
