  • Metropolitan Vladimir celebrated the Divine Liturgy in St. Nicholas Parish in Lozova, Straseni

    On the Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee, His Eminence Metropolitan Vladimir, the Arch-Pastor of the Orthodox Church of Moldova, celebrated the Divine Liturgy in the parish of St. Nicholas in Lozova community, Straseni region.

    The Arch-pastor was assisted at the service by archpriest Petru Croitor, parish rector, archpriest Victor Mihalachi, Straseni church circumscription dean, archimandrite Nicolae (Rosca), confessor-administrator of the Monastery of Ciuflea, and a synaxis of priests and deacons.

    This Divine Liturgy coincided with the 50th anniversary of father Petru Croitor, rector of St. Nicholas Parish, on which occasion he was awarded a commemorative metropolitan distinction – the Order of Church Merit.

    Other church distinctions were awarded to significant contributors to the prosperity of the parish.

    After the Liturgy, the clergy participated in Te-Deum thanks-giving prayers, and Metropolitan Vladimir addressed a congratulation message to father rector Petru Croitor and the entire community, underlining the role of unity in prayer and good acts.

    Father Petru thanked the arch-pastor for warm words and encouragement, appreciating all concelebrating priests’ and deacons’ sharing of the spiritual joy of the Divine Service.

    Before departure, Metropolitan Vladimir and the clergy brought homage to the memory of Ever-Commemorated Metropolitan Nestor Vornicescu of Oltenia, original of Lozova community, and whose monument was erected in the courtyard of the church.

    The Sunday of the Publican and the Pharisee is the first Sunday preparing the Orthodox Christians for the Great Lent. The Sunday’s Gospel Reading encourages us to repent of our own sins, and to rely on the Lord’s mercy and grace, rather than on our own piety and righteousness
