    Thursday, 2nd November, 2017, on the commemoration day of Great-Martyr Artemius of Antioch, His Eminence Metropolitan Vladimir celebrated the Divine Liturgy and consecrated the Nativity of the Theotokos Church in the community of Antoneuca, Drochia region.

    During the service, Metropolitan Vladimir awarded high church distinction to the parish rector, Archpriest Andran Cepoi – the right of wearing mitra, in sign of devoted efforts in the strengthening and good administration of the parish, and pastoring of the entrusted faithful flock.

    At the report of the Dean of the circumscription, numerous priests from Drochia Deanery were also awarded church distinctions, in sign of appreciation of dedicated ministry and service for the glory of the Orthodox Church of Moldova.
