  • Archpastoral service on the Patron Feast at the Nativity of the Theotokos Monastery in Curchi

    Every year, on 8/21 September, the Orthodox Church celebrates the Feast of the Nativity of our Most Holy Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary.

    This Feast is very special to the entire Christianity, and is a blessed occasion for prayerful communion and jubilation in the Monastery of Curchi, Orhei region, considered a spiritual fortress of our country.

    Thus, in the very morning of Thursday, 21 September 2017, numerous clergy and lay Christians gathered in the Nativity of the Theotokos Monastery of Curchi to unite in the liturgical prayer with Metropolitan Vladimir of Chisinau and Moldova, assisted by Vicar Bishop Ioan of Soroca and Siluan of Orhei. The arch-pastors were assisted at the Divine Liturgy by numerous clergy – superior monks of monastic settlements, deans, priests from Orhei circumscription and other areas of the canonical territory of the Metropolis of Moldova.

    After the Liturgy, the praying community participated in a Thanks-Giving service, and Metropolitan Vladimir congratulated Bishop Siluan, who is Egumen of Curchi Monastery, the monastic settlers, the brothers, and the pilgrims present at the Feast:

    “Today’s Feast teaches us to raise to the rank of divine beauty and look around to notice the beauty of the world and entire creation of God. This union between the heaven and earth was achieved by our Most Holy Lady Theotokos and Ever Virgin Mary, and brought by her into the world. It helps us to ascend with her help to perfection, to the resemblance with God, Who is the true Beauty and source of our life”.

    Bishop Siluan thanked His Eminence Vladimir and the entire praying community for sharing the liturgical joy of communion with Christ. His Grace Siluan also underlined high appreciation and gratefulness for the support in the renovation and maintenance the Nativity of the Theotokos Monastery in Curchi, offered with so much generosity by the monastery’s ctitors and pilgrims.
