    Wednesday, 8th November 2017, on the Feast of Holy Great-Martyr Demetrius the Myrrh-Streamer, His Eminence Metropolitan Vladimir celebrated the Patron Feast Divine Liturgy in the Monastery of Pripceni-Curchi, amidst a big number of worshipers.

    During the Service, for outstanding efforts in the good administration of the monastic community in Pripceni-Curchi, Metropolitan Vladimir awarded a high church distinction to mother Filoteea (Railean), Nun-superior of the monastery – Degree II Order of Blessed Agafia of Cuselauca.

    After the Thanks-giving prayers that followed the Divine Liturgy, Metropolitan Vladimir came up with arch-pastoral message, mentioning, among others:

    “Nowadays, when the holy faith is under attack from many sources, we need to love pure truth given to us by God, and do our best to communicate this truth to others. There is so much suffering around, and that is why we must show compassion and sympathy to those in need, soothing their pain with our good acts. Praying with pure heart, Christians oxygenate their spiritual life and follow, at the same time, the example of Holy Great-Martyr Demetrius, celebrated today, and all other saints, who pleased God”, said the metropolitan.

    Father-confessor Ioan addressed a brief message of gratefulness to the Metropolitan and to the praying community.
