    Wednesday, 25 July 2018, on the Feast of the Icon of the Theotokos Trihirussa (with three hands), Divine Liturgy was celebrated by Metropolitan Vladimir of Chisinau and all Moldova, in a portable altar installed in front of the monument of St. Stephan the Great in the Square of Liberty in the town of Soroca.

    Concelebrating to the first hierarch of the Moldovan Church were Vicar Bishops Ioan of Soroca and Siluan of Orhei, who were assisted by archpriest Vadim Cheibas, Metropolitan secretary, and numerous priests and deacons arrived from all dioceses of the Orthodox Church of Moldova.

    About 3000 Orthodox Christians uttered prayer in the open-air altar.
